Seung-Schik Yoo

Neuroscientist, Engineer

Seung-Schik Yoo is a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School, working as an associate professor of Radiology. He also serves as a faculty member of Mind Brain Behavior at Harvard University. He has done early pioneering works in developing real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging that are used to interpret the human mind, and applied the technology to interface the brain function with machines and computers. He has developed a new mode of non-invasive brain stimulation modality which utilizes the focused ultrasound waves to control regional neural functions, including the activity of the brain. He is primarily interested in advancing the technique for various neurotherapeutics, but also likes to seek out new ways to link thought/brain processes between individuals. Seung-Schik Yoo also engineered a three-dimensional bioprinter that can ‘print out’ artificial brain tissues and other biological organoids for potential applications in neural computers and medical applications.
