BCI research is one of the most fascinating fields in neuroscience. This amazing technology can help people who have lost the ability to move because of injury or disease.Comments closed
This seminar will provide an overview of a pilot study conducted in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. V. Reggie Edgerton (UCLA) to develop a therapy for spinal cord-injured (SCI) patients that is based primarily on electrical stimulation. The study demonstrates that following a partial transverse spinal lesion (hemisection) at a lower thoracic level (T8-T9), the neural circuitry within the lumbar region that controls weight-bearing and stepping remains functional, and can be activated if appropriate sensory (afferent) information from the periphery is provided.Comments closed
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering Research Experience for Undergraduates program will be held during the summer of 2014 (June 17 – August 22). This 10-week program on the University of Washington’s Seattle campus will provide undergraduate students with opportunities to work on research projects with researchers and to take part in workshop training sessions in ethics, communication skills, and scientific presentation skills designed to provide the undergraduate scientist with a solid foundation for graduate study.Comments closed
The National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to the San Diego MESA Alliance (SDMA) provided stipends for 36 student interns (12 students in MESA/MEP program at each campus – San Diego City College, San Diego State University, and Southwestern Community College) this summer at various projects in science and engineering firms.
This is a unique paid internship that incorporates a team component into the student internship experience. Hired student interns were placed in teams of 2-4 students to work on projects in engineering and science firms or for faculty. Summer internships occurred between May through August of 2012, at a minimum of 100 hours. In some cases, employers and/or faculty may extend internships or create other internship opportunities for students (beyond summer 2012).
