The 2nd IEEE EMBS Workshop on Advanced Technologies for BRAIN Initiatives, which will be held on April 21, 2015, just before the 7th IEEE EMBS Neural Engineering Conference, Montpellier, France. We strongly encourage members of both the Neuroscience and Engineering Communities to attend this highly multidisciplinary workshop.
The workshop will highlight the development of novel electronic and photonic devices and techniques for experimental probing, neural simulation studies, and the design and development of human-machine interface systems, artificial vision sensors, and neural prosthesis have significantly restored and enhanced the impaired sensory functions and motor systems. Furthermore, we highlight these recent technological advances by focusing on advanced technologies that monitor and control brain activities to treat neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Depression, etc., from the molecular to systemic levels.
Invited talks will be presented by internationally well respected researchers. This workshop will provide a unique interactive platform to exchange of ideas in the areas of BRAIN initiatives with leading researchers and medical and industry professionals.
