Neuroscientists and neuroengineers are using state-of-the-art tools for understanding the mysteries of the brain. A suite of new approaches is allowing researchers to tap into the brain activity and to measure the electrical, molecular, cellular, and structural changes that underlie complex behaviors as well as neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. This technological burst, spurred by the recent BRAIN (Brain Research for Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative by the US government, affords a unique educational opportunity at Johns Hopkins-especially with the recently inaugurated Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute.
This multi-instructor course will give students an opportunity to learn the latest advances in the field of neuroengineering from the best experts on campus who are currently contributing their pioneering research in this field.
Written permission from the instructor is required. Completion of all required core courses, as well as the core courses for your chosen focus area, is strongly recommended.
