Kevin Mohsenian earned his B.Eng. and M.S. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, where he designed computational models for deep brain stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation. He received his Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh, where Kevin studied the behavior and neural correlates of saccadic eye movements to moving targets. He recorded multichannel data in midbrain structures, analyzed pseudo-population activity, and developed neural network models to elucidate the neural mechanisms that underlie predictive eye movements. Kevin's research in the Grill Lab will focus on optimizing stimulation parameters for vagus nerve stimulation in human subjects, and investigating the effects of spinal cord stimulation on afferent pathways in preclinical models.
