Neurobiological Engineering ~ New MIT Center!

Very exciting to have public announcement of new MIT Center for Neurobiological Engineering co-directed by my MIT Media Lab colleague Ed Boyden, who's also co-instructor of our Neurotechnology Ventures class! The core mission of the CNBE is to reverse engineer the human brain. By stitching together a transdisciplinary set of colleagues at MIT and beyond, they aim to:
  • Create tools for systematic nervous system experimentation; 
  • Engineer neurons, neural tissue, and their cross-interactions with cells, devices, and prosthetics; 
  • Develop new analytic understanding of neural systems and data; and 
  • Educate and exchange ideas at the verge betwixt neurobiology and engineering.
