Martha G Garcia-Garcia, BSc, MASc
- 2011-2013 MASc, Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto, Canada.
- 2006-2010 BSc, Biomedical Engineering, Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico.
My main interests are in brain-machine interface (BMI) research, mainly investigating the reorganization of neural circuits occurring during and after training. I work with animal models to isolate single-neuron activity using invasive recording technology.
