Key Areas: clinical neural engineering, biomedical engineering, neuroimaging of cognitive function, active implantable devices, movement disorders

Richard Reilly focuses on signal processing of neuroimaging, physiological, and bioacoustic data and brings to GBHI a better understanding of the fundamental human physiological and cognitive state. His work involves the development of quantitative methods to understand neural function. His group also develops analytical, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging methods that allow outcomes of interventions to be more accurately assessed and predicted.

By better understanding basic neural function, we are also looking for ways to optimize neural function as we age.

He combines advanced neural engineering with patient needs resulting from neurological disorders. Using advanced neural signal processing methods, he creates patient-oriented diagnostic and assessment tools, neural prosthetics, and therapeutic devices. Through his research, Reilly targets a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of sensory and cognitive processing.

Reilly has been teaching and conducting research and Trinity College Dublin since 2008. He is an expert in electronic engineering, biomedical engineering, and biomedical signal processing. He is a Fulbright Fellow and was awarded the Haughton Medal from the Royal Academy of Medicine of Ireland in 2013.
