ECE 374N ECE 374N. Neural Engineering. 3 Hours.

Examine a variety of clinical conditions and their associated neurological basis, and then analyze the engineering solutions to cope with the neurological deficits, with an emphasis on electrical and computer engineering components. Study approaches to design motor neuroprosthetics and sensory neuroprosthetics that restore lost functions. Learn principles of deep brain stimulation, neuromodulation, and brain plasticity. Explore the concepts behind technological approaches for neurorehabilitation, in particular robotics and brain-computer interfaces. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Electrical and Computer Engineering 374N and Electrical Engineering 379K (Topic: Neural Engineering) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Upper-division standing; Electrical and Computer Engineering 351M (or Electrical Engineering 351M) or 445S (or Electrical Engineering 351M); Electrical and Computer Engineering 461P (or Electrical Engineering 461P) or 460J (or Electrical Engineering 460J); and consent of the instructor.
