Video: Cameron Good on Wireless Implantable Recordings (TIPS 2018)

Cameron Good, PhD, is a physical scientist at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland where his lab performs behavioral physiology experiments utilizing optogenetic techniques to study REM sleep mechanisms. He was awarded a LUCI Fellowship from the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering to develop fully implantable, biocompatible neural devices to study brain disorders. He also serves as a visiting scientist at the Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense (MRICD), where he works to discover novel medical countermeasures for nerve agent exposure. Previously he was at NIH/NIDA, where he built a successful optogenetic neuroscience research program to dissect the role of brainstem reward circuitry that plays a role in the aversive components of abstinence or withdrawal from addictive substances.

These remarks were part of the 2018 Technology in Psychiatry Summit, an event sponsored by the McLean Institute for Technology in Psychiatry, which occurred November 1-2, 2018 at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.
