BIOE 492 - SENSORY NEUROENGINEERING

Long Title: SENSORY NEUROENGINEERING
Department: Bioengineering
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Seminar
Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Undergraduate Professional
Visiting Undergraduate
Undergraduate
Prerequisite(s): BIOE 332
Description: This course will explore how bioengineering techniques and principles are applied to understand and model sensory systems, with a focus on the auditory, vestibular, and visual systems. The interaction between the electrical, mechanical and optical aspects of these systems, and ways to modulate these interactions, will be explored. The course will also cover the design of current auditory, visual and somato-sensory neuroprosthetics (i.e. cochlear implants, retinal implants and brain-machine interfaces), as well as emerging technologies for neural stimulation. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: BIOE 592. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for BIOE 492 if student has credit for BIOE 592.
