This summer, high school students from the DO-IT Scholars Program visited the center to get an introduction to neuroscience and neural engineering. The visit helps to spark interest in neurotechnology, and it encourages students to see themselves as having the ability to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Researchers in Matt Reynolds’ lab at the University of Washington are developing implantable brain-computer interfaces that have increased capacity for transferring power and data wirelessly.
The center’s summer programs offer participants a chance to learn about neurotechnology in a hands-on, interactive and immersive way. Read an overview and learn what two students are hoping to get out of their summer program experience this year.
A new research finding contributes to the development of neuroprosthetics (assistive devices that supplant or supplement the input and output of the nervous system) by revealing the need to close a performance gap between artificial and natural touch.
The CNT and UW DO-IT co-hosted the ERC-INCLUDES Capacity Building Institute on April 4 and 5, 2019. This event enabled attendees from across the nation to share strategies to recruit, retain and engage underrepresented and underserved groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
