Our basic research on neuronal function addresses information processing by the brain- we are specifically focused on applying engineering analysis to bridge the gap from cellular processes to system level behavior. We believe that the unique integration of skills sets exemplified in biomedical engineering including quantitative physiology, signal processing, instrumentation, as well as the role biomedical engineers in communicating with and integrating scientists, chemical-mechanical-electrical engineers, biologists, and clinicians, all converges to create a highly dynamic and exciting research environment. Moreover, is it precisely this type integration that we believe will lead to fundamental breakthroughs in our understanding of brain function. We predict that in the next decade Neural Engineers, whether by training or by the nature of their work, will emerge as leaders in neuroscience, precisely as in the past decade biomechanical engineers have re-defined bone research while biochemical engineers fundamentally transformed pulmonary and cardiac function.
