Biological Futures Colloquium
Dr. Tom Daniel, CSNE Interim Director, will present "Neural Engineering: the intellectual and physical interface between technology and life" at the Biological Futures in the Globalized World Colloquium.
This talk will review and define the emerging domain of neural engineering. It focuses largely on a multicampus effort aimed at developing technologies that interact with, assist, and are inspired by living nervous systems (http://www.csne-erc.org). The effort is supported by a recent grant from the National Science Foundation to create Engineering Research Centers for which we have formed the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering. Its mission is quite broad: developing systems that assist individuals with motor deficits, creating larger pathway for diverse individuals in STEM disciplines, and building partnerships with the private and international sector. Woven throughout the CSNE are issues and questions about ethical aspects of the amalgamation of living and synthetic systems.
