11th Annual Neuroscience Symposium

Brain-Machine Interfaces in Health and Disease

One of the most exciting areas of research in neuroscience in the past few years has been the use of brain-machine and brain-computer interfaces in expanding our knowledge of the functions of the normal nervous system, and as a therapy in the restoration of function for patients after a variety of debilitating nervous system diseases or injuries, including stroke, spinal cord injury, hearing loss, movement disorders, and others.  Join us at our 11th Annual Neuroscience Symposium on October 26-27, as we hear from world-leading researchers about ground-breaking new discoveries exploring the use of brain-machine interfaces, as well as perspectives from patients and therapists, and from corporate leaders involved in advancing neurotechnology.
