During his post-doctoral year, he studied species-specific vocalizations and recorded from the prefrontal cortex of awake-behaving macaque monkeys in the medical school of University of Rochester. Dr. Güçlü has been with Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Boğaziçi University since 2004. He is the director of Tactile Research Laboratory at the Institute and has founded the University Vivarium in Center for Life Sciences and Technologies Research. His current research focuses on the transformation of tactile information from the periphery to the cortex, and it involves spike recordings from rat cortical neurons in the hindlimb area. Recently, he has completed a project to develop cortical neuroprostheses for tactile feedback.
