UW Institute for Neuroengineering (UWIN)UW Institute for NeuroengineeringUW Institute for NeuroengineeringThe UW Institute for Neuroengineering brings together faculty, students and staff from the entire University of Washington campus to solve some of todayÕs greatest scientific challenges about neural system function. By supporting students and faculty, we will provide new technologies that improve and enrich the quality of life for millions of people. UWIN forms a bridge that links advances in biology, computing, devices, data science, and computational neuroscience. We leverage new and existing partnerships with industry and the private sector, blurring the boundary between the UW and the surrounding interests in neuroengineering.http://uwin.washington.edu
Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)NSF Engineering Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)Ñone of 20 Engineering Research Centers funded by the National Science FoundationÑis a global hub for delivering neural-inspired sensorimotor devices. The Center's research focuses on reanimating paralyzed limbs and inducing neuroplasticity for stroke and spinal cord injury patients using implantable closed-loop bidirectional brain-computer interfaces (BBCIs) that can both record from and stimulate the central nervous system. This research integrates novel recording, stimulating and wireless technologies with a computational understanding of sensorimotor processing and plasticity in the nervous system. The CSNE's research is also guided by people's needs and neuroethics. The CSNE is led by University of Washington Professor Rajesh Rao, who is based in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering. Core partners are MIT and San Diego State University.http://csne-erc.org
