Xing Chen is Senior Researcher and co-PI at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, specializing in brain-computer interfaces, visual neuroscience, and blindness. She uses innovative 3D modelling and printing techniques to create customized cranial implants for improved implant stability and animal welfare. She develops high-channel-count neuroprosthesis systems (1024 channels) for chronic recording and electrical stimulation of primate visual cortex, yielding demonstrations of the feasibility of artificial vision in the blind. Her work has been featured in both international and national newspapers and magazines, such as CNN, Science Magazine, Scientific American, NOS, NPO Radio, and RTL News.
