Clayton Bingham is an engineer designing replacement parts for the broken brain. Our brains determine most of who we are and what we do...it allows us to do amazing and creative things when it works, but can also be a source of extreme disappointment when it doesn’t. Clayton's work focuses on understanding brain implant technologies that can improve our memory and may someday bring relief to those suffering from brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury. His research group, led by Dr. Ted Berger, has made some exciting innovations that will pave the way toward new therapeutic devices. All of this is done with the goal of improving the quality of life of the many people who have exhausted all existing treatment options.
