Neural engineering research involves fundamental and applied studies related to neurons, neural systems, behavior and neurological disease.
This program involves fundamental and applied studies related to neurons, neural systems, behavior and neurological disease encompassing a spectrum of activities, including mathematical modeling; exploring novel approaches to sensory (vision, hearing, smell and touch) and motor processing; exploring fundamentals of neural plasticity; and designing neuroprosthetics. The approaches involve information processing at the molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral levels.
