Hi Reddit, I am Felix Aplin, a neuroscientist and research fellow at UNSW! I’m jumping on today to chat all things neuroscience and neural engineering.

About me - I completed my PhD at the University of Melbourne, and have taken on research fellowships at Johns Hopkins Hospital (USA) and Hannover Medical School (Germany). I'm a big nerd who loves talking about the brain and all things science related.

I also have a soft spot for video games - I like to relax with a good rogue-like or co-op game before bed.

My research focus is on how we can harness technology to connect with, and repair, our nervous system. I lead a team that investigates new treatments for chronic pain here at UNSW’s Translational Neuroscience Facility.

Looking forward to chatting with you all about neuroscience, my research and the future of technology.


Here’s my proof featuring my pet bird, Melicamp (or Meli for short):




EDIT: Thanks for the questions everyone! I have to wrap up now but I’ve had a great time chatting with you all!

If you’d like to get in touch or chat more about neuroscience, you can reach me via email, here’s a link where you can find my contact info.

Thanks again - Felix!,
