Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

This course provides a survey of the latest technologies for recording and controlling brain activity. The class has three parts. Part I consists of lectures to introduce the relevant concepts in neurobiology. Part II, in seminar format, discusses approaches to read out neural signals, such as large-scale electrophysiology and optical imaging. Part III, in seminar format, focuses on approaches to modify neural dynamics, including electrical, optical, and viral strategies. Emphases will be placed on how the technologies may be integrated into brain machine interfaces, and what promise they have for treating brain disorders. The course assumes no background in neuroscience. It is intended for engineers who want to know more about neural engineering and neurobiologists who are interested in the latest methods.
