E224C: Interface between Neurobiology and Neural Engineering

The interface of neurobiology and engineering is revolutionizing the academic and industry
worlds. This can be seen in the initiatives arising to encourage this development (e.g., the
Obama Brain Initiative) and the emergence of private philanthropy and entrepreneurship going
in that direction in the industry world (e.g., GoogleBrain, Neuralink, etc…). The goal of this
course is therefore to expose students interested in neuroscience and engineering to the
remarkable interface between them. To do so, the course will review the utilization,
development and implementation of neural engineering technologies and their application
towards both basic science and therapeutic approaches. At the completion of this course students will have obtained basic knowledge of neural engineering and neuroscience and in
particular, the beneficial interface between them in ongoing and upcoming global initiatives.
