Williams' research featured in web teaching tool
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) recently announced the NIBIB Bionic Man, an interactive web tool designed to inform students and the public about research conducted using NIBIB funding. The interactive tool consists of an artist’s depiction of a man using the NIBIB research. The research projects appear popped out of the image, and visitors to the site can click on them to find out more about each device’s function and learn about the research behind the device.
Among the research featured in the tool is Biomedical Engineering Associate Professor Justin Williams' flexible electrode research. The flexible electrode arrays record activity directly from the brain, which enables doctors to monitor brain states in real time and direct brain control of devices such as robotic limbs.
