Neural Engineering

BME 59500 / 3 Cr.

Neural engineering is an emerging engineering discipline that combines the various disciplines of engineering with the biological, physical and material sciences to find the means to access, understand, manipulate, and perhaps enhance the nervous system and the information it contains. The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the field of neural engineering and will start with the introduction of the neuron, the bioelectric phenomenon and the neural / electronic interface. These topics will be reinforced through hands on practical experiments using electrodes for stimulation and recording.
