Jens Schouenborg

Jens Schouenborg has a background in integrative neurophysiology focusing on pain mechanisms and sensorimotor integration and got a full professorship in Physiology, 1998 at Lund University, Sweden.

Since 2006 Jens Schouenborg heads the interdisciplinary Neuronano Research and Innovation Center at Lund University, Sweden, which focus on inventing and developing a new generation of truly biocompatible neuro-electronic interfaces for understanding fundamental brain functions ( and for therapeutic applications ( in e.g. chronic pain, neurodegenerative diseases and epilepsy. The novel technologies developed provides opportunities for powerful treatments without noticeable side effects in both pain conditions and Parkinson’s disease and also unprecedented opportunities to decode the neuronal signaling in the conscious brain.
