Neural Prostheses-Interfacing with the Human Brain & Nervous System

Event Date 

July 6, 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm


Perlstein Hall Auditorium


Technology is rapidly advancing which will permit enhanced electronic interfaces with the human brain and peripheral nervous system. These interfaces will be used for two-way communications that replace biological sensory-motor functions. This seminar will describe the form of the emerging technology used to form these connections to the human body.

For this seminar, Philip R. Troyk, Associate Dean of Armour College of Engineering and Professor of Biomedical Engineering, will present his lecture "Neural Prostheses-Interfacing with the Human Brain & Nervous System."

This event is open to all current Illinois Tech students. Attendance is mandatory for participants of the Armour R&D Summer Research Immersion Program.
