Brain, Mind, and Body: Cognitive Neuroengineering for Health and Wellness
A Virtual Symposium and Workshop
15-16 December 2021
Mens sana in corpore sano— a healthy mind thrives in a healthy body. Great technological feats in engineering and medicine have provided powerful means for remediating specific impairments in body and brain function through highly localized intervention. However, potentially even greater healing powers reside within, calling for minimally intrusive and regenerative strategies throughout the body that harness natural defenses against disease. The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) in partnership with IEEE Brain and the cognitive neuroscience and clinical neuroengineering communities are centrally positioned to catalyze such advances towards more effective and sustainable healthcare. This second Brain Mind Body symposium and workshop, like the one first offered in 2019, brings together researchers and practitioners across academia, industry and the clinical profession to crystalize a vision towards holistic integration of unobtrusive neurotechnology and medicine with a focus on minimally invasive strategies including neurofeedback and electroceuticals that harness/cultivate harmony between brain, mind, and body.
