This course will introduce students to currently available and emerging technologies for interfacing with the human brain. Students will study the fundamental principles, capabilities and limitations of a range of relevant technologies within the scope of noninvasive brain-computer interfaces, neural implants, neurostimulation, sensory substitution and neuroinformatics. The ethical and societal ramifications of these technologies will also be considered. Applications of neuroengineering technology in medicine will be emphasized such as the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases and neural rehabilitation.
