Closed-Loop Systems for Motor Control
We are also developing closed-loop algorithms and interfaces to control peripheral musculatures, with emphasis on networks controlling the craniofacial system. We are researching the deterioration of these systems in Parkinson's disease and ways to ameliorate symptoms via stimulation techniques.
Body-brain communication
Our lab focuses on understanding how the brain senses and controls the body that is attached to it. We specifically aim at anatomically and physiologically describing the neural networks that link the brain to craniofacial and abdominal organs. My laboratory employs a range of techniques suitable to study the interaction between the central and peripheral nervous systems. Those include special surgical approaches, cell-specific neuroanatomical tracing, pathway-defined optogenetics, and in vivo electrophysiological recordings from nerves, muscles, and neurons.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. de Araujo is not currently required to report Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
