A new technique can stimulate and record activity across broad swaths of the monkey brain. Dr. Yazdan’s 2016 Neuron paper is featured in this article.
New faculty Andre Berndt, Amy Orsborn and Azadeh Yazdan-Shahmorad will create a complementary cluster of research expertise in the area of neuroengineering.
Are we ready to deploy optogenetics in humans?
Two faculty with robust expertise in neuroengineering and neural computation will join outstanding UW teams in brain-machine interfaces, neuronal plasticity and neuronal learning.
The intersection of engineering and neuroscience promises great advances in health care. The UW is establishing itself as a global leader in the field spurred on by the College of Engineering’s significant investments in faculty and cutting-edge research.
