The mission of the Neural Engineering Center is to develop cutting-edge science and technology for measuring, understanding, modifying, and stimulating neural activity. There is a critical need for novel collaborative integration between researchers developing interfacing technologies and those advancing our scientific understanding of brain and nervous system function. Applications of these technologies span advancing understanding of neural function to translational methods that improve clinical outcomes.
The Neural Engineering Center is a Georgia Tech Interdisciplinary Research Center co-directed by Robert J. Butera, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, and Lena H. Ting, Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
In addition to coordinating large research and training grants, the Neural Engineering Center hosts seminars, workshops, retreats, and seed grants to promote novel, collaborative research of the science and technology of neural stimulation.
