Dr. Yodchanun earned his PhD. in Brain-Computer Interface from the University of Texas. Currently he is leading the Brain-Computer Interface Lab at Mahidol University. Over the past ten years, he spent time working with university students and alumni to create a neurologically controlled wheelchairs and similar devices for hemiplegic patients.
