Description: Neuroengineering is an emerging discipline focused on measuring and manipulating the activity of the brain and nervous system. Using the language of physics and engineering, this course serves as an introduction to neuroengineering to students who may have little or no prior biology training. The course begins by describing how ion channels, membrane potentials, action potentials, and synapses represent information within the brain. Students will then learn a variety of techniques to model this behavior, and modern methods to measure and manipulate neural activity using electrical, optical, and genetic techniques. Students will be expected to be familiar with voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, RC circuits, and statistical mechanics. Homework assignments will require the use of Matlab. Cross-list: BIOE 480, ELEC 580, BIOE 590. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ELEC 480 if student has credit for ELEC 580.
