Integrated Systems Neural Engineering Fall 2009

Integrated Systems Neural Engineering (1) Journal Club Course to review current literature in integrated systems neural engineering. Topics vary with to participants interests and current publications, but may include topics in signal processing, models and theory of seizure dynamics, experiments to understand neural activity during behavior and processing, instrumentation and materials for interfacing with brain.
