A lot of nanotechnology work is going on in the area of brain research. For instance the use of a carbon nanotube rope to electrically stimulate neural stem cells nanotechnology to repair the brain and other advances in fabricating nanomaterial-neural interfaces for signal generation. A bit further out, and actually beyond the scope of medicine are efforts to build artificial brains – something that is called neuromorphic engineering: a new interdisciplinary discipline that includes nanotechnologies and whose goal is to design artificial neural systems with physical architectures similar to biological nervous systems. Participants will be attaining knowledge of how nanoelectronics utilized in biomedical applications.
