18-690: Introduction to Neuroscience for Engineers




The first half of the course will introduce engineers to the neurosciences from the cellular level to the structure and function of the central nervous system (CNS) vis-à-vis the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and include a study of basic neurophysiology; the second half of the course will review neuroengineering methods and technologies that enable study of and therapeutic solutions for diseases or damage to the CNS. A goal of this course is to provide a taxonomy of neuroengineering technologies for research or clinical application in the neurosciences.
