Brown University School of Engineering

The burgeoning field of optogenetics makes it possible for scientists to control brain activity using pulses of light. Now, Brown University researchers have developed an optoelectronic device which opens the possibility of bidirectional communication with the brain — stimulating neural microcircuits while while monitoring changes in neural activity.

Job/Internship Bulletin Board

The School of Engineering has created a bulletin board for internships, employment, faculty projects, and other opportunities. Please note that the bulletin board can only be accessed from Brown IP addresses (which means it can be accessed on campus, or through the campus VPN if off campus). This is required since it is not a public site.
