Neuroengineering and Neurotechnology

Operating on the cutting edge of neuroengineering and neurotechnology, researchers at the Carney Institute for Brain Science are making huge strides in developing and deploying devices that interface with the brain to yield better understanding of the brain and aid those with paralysis and other nervous system disorders.

The origins of neuroegineering at Brown University are in a project known as BrainGate. Building on early fundamental research in the laboratory of Carney’s Founding Director John Donoghue on how the brain controls movement, a team of researchers who transcend boundaries of fields of study has been building and testing a brain-computer interface system that promises to restore function and independence for individuals with paralysis.
