IEEE Brain Initiative Workshop on Advanced NeuroTechnologies for BRAIN Initiatives (ANTBI)
November 9-10, 2017 – Washington DC, USA

See Tentative Agenda Register Now

2017 IEEE Brain Initiative WorkshopThe IEEE Brain Initiative Workshop will highlight the development of novel technological innovations, including engineered neuro-materials based implants, opto-genetics, to treat and monitor, traumatic brain injury, cognitive brain impairments, stroke and spinal cord injury etc. We also highlight translational clinical research on human-machine interface systems to significantly restore, and enhance, the impaired sensory functions and motor systems. Furthermore, global neuro-technology industry trends, nano devices, computational advances, and stem cell engineering for the treatment of neurological diseases, from the molecular to systemic levels, will be discussed.

Location is at the National Housing Center, 1201 15th St., NW, Washington DC.
