Dr. Karunesh Ganguly is a neurologist who specializes in neurorehabilitation, particularly for patients with gait or walking disorders. He also treats chronic neurological impairments following stroke or other brain injury. In his research, he studies new treatments for patients recovering from neurological conditions and injuries. He is specifically interested in the development of brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) that have the potential to revolutionize the care of neurologically impaired patients by allowing electronic devices to directly interface with the brain. Development of these devices could eventually allow paralyzed patients to recover limb function and help retrain brain function after injury. He has authored numerous peer reviewed publications on this topic.
Ganguly earned a medical degree and Ph.D. in neuroscience in 2004 in the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of California, San Diego. He completed his internal medicine and neurology training at UCSF. Ganguly is an assistant professor in Neurology at UCSF.
