Yuichi Takeuchi received his PhD in neurophysiology from the National Institute of Physiological Sciences in Japan 2010, where he studied remodeling of the somatosensory pathway of rodents after peripheral nerve injury using in vitro and in vivo electrophysiological techniques. He then worked in University of Szeged in Hungary, where he developed a real-time closed-loop intervention of epileptic seizures. His research is currently focused on real-time closed-loop interventions of neuropsychiatric disorders.
