There is an increasing interest and need in the development and use of advanced technologies to monitor and control brain activities to treat neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Depression, etc., from the molecular to systemic levels, The advanced technologies such as robotics and exoskeletons have already made significant impact on rehabilitation for retraining upper and lower extremity function after stroke, spinal cord injuries and TBI.

The 2018 IEEE Brain Initiative Workshop on Advanced NeuroTechnologies highlighted the development of novel technological innovations, covering both invasive and non-invasive approaches, which provided precise and consistent therapy in a controlled and rigorous manner, track quantitatively the therapy related improvement and treat many subjects simultaneously. The Workshop also focused on translational neural engineering as well as career and entrepreneurial opportunities in this field.

Invited talks were presented by internationally well respected experts. An evening poster session provided presentation opportunities for young researchers. This workshop provides a unique interactive and networking platform to encourage exchange of ideas with leading researchers and medical and industry professionals.
