Neuroengineering

neuro engineering researchNeuroengineering is a multidisciplinary field that involves the use of engineering technology to study the function of various neural systems. Research at UW-Madison is primarily focused on interfacing with the nervous system in one of two ways:

  1. Neuroimaging – the development of novel non-invasive imaging methods for studying or diagnosing neurological injury and disease.
  2. Neural interface – the development of implantable technology and materials for neuroprosthetic and rehabilitation applications or basic neuroscience studies.
