In this blog and by sharing our stories, we aim to ENGAGE students, researchers and the public, and ENABLE people who have disabilities.
Juhi Farooqui did not know that the field of neural engineering existed – until she put together a Google query that captured her interest in neuroscience and its application in research.
“The search was born out of my love for neuroscience – a fascination with the nervous system and the many levels and models by which it could be conceptualized – as well as a desire to ultimately be engaged with the application of scientific knowledge to tangible issues,” Farooqui stated in a letter of interest.
A Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)-affiliated team of faculty and student researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Washington (UW) recently made a significant advance in the design of implantable fibers for studying neurons in the spinal cord.
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) is a leader among National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) in actively ensuring accessibility of its physical spaces, activities and resources. In the process, the CSNE strives to welcome and engage people with disabilities while increasing awareness about their contributions in the engineering community.
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) has recently formed partnerships with ArianRF, Embotic Technology, Neurotech LLC and Ripple. These are four innovative companies working in areas related to neural engineering, such as electronic hardware design, prosthetic research and development, electroencephalogram (EEG) support technology, and neural interface processing.
