IEEE Brain will feature one recording from the 2018 Brain Initiative Workshop on Advanced Neuro Technologies each month.
This month, José L. Pons, PhD of the Cajal Institute (CSIC) presents on the role of robotics and neuroprosthetics in neurorehabilitation via novel human-machine interface (HMI) technologies.

Four Types of Brain Cells Identified Based on Electrical Spiking Activity
30 August 2019, by Emily Waltz
We often dumb down our most complex organ—the brain—by referring to most of its constituents as simply “neurons.” There are, in fact, many different types of neurons, but for most of them, we don’t know enough about how they work to even give them a name.
Highest-Resolution Human Brain ‘Parts List’ To Date Lays Road Map to Better Treatments for Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders
21 August 2019
A new study from the Allen Institute for Brain Science has written the most detailed “parts list” of the human brain to date. This categorization of our brain cell types lays the groundwork to improve our understanding of our own brains and to dramatically change how we treat human brain diseases and disorders.
