Neural Engineering BME

Aysegul Gunduz

Applying engineering to neuroscience; includes such diverse areas as neural tissue engineering, models of neural function, and neural interface technology. Focuses mainly in the context of neural interfaces and prosthetics, from basic neural physiology and models of neural mechanisms to advanced neural interfaces currently in development or produced commercially.

Introduction to Neural Interfaces and Systems (planned for Spring 2024) ECE

Adam Khalifa

The interdisciplinary course focuses on invasive neural implants and covers various types of recording and stimulating neural interface technologies used in animal research and humans. The course examines the neurophysiological principles and computational modeling of neurons, as well as the tissue-electrode interface, to better understand how electrical signals and information are transmitted between the devices and neurons. The course will also cover block diagrams of circuits commonly utilized in neural implants.
Neurotechnologies in Education Ed. Tech.

Pavlo Antonenko

This seminar focuses on the neuroscience frameworks and technologies that are gained popularity in education research as a way to supplement and offset the weakness of self-report data.
