Neural Engineering Poster Day winners announced

This year’s BME6360 Neural Engineering Class presented their posters in the Biomedical Science Atrium to a keen crowd of students and faculty. The Neural Engineering course, which is a project-based learning experience, teaches how to apply engineering techniques to study, repair, or replace the nervous system. Students presented their work on one of five projects they completed during the semester. For the first time, the class was co-taught to graduate and undergraduate students. At the poster day, awards were presented to posteriekers in best undergraduate, best graduate and best overall categories.

The winners and their project titles are as follows:

Best Undergraduate Poster— Jake Rieke, BME, “Output-specific Desynchronization in Sensorimotor Rhythm Cursor Control Task”

Best Graduate Poster— Enrico Opri, BME, “Neural Encoding in Primary Motor Cortex for Application in Neural Prosthesis”

Best Overall Poster— Manelle Merad, MAE, “Utilizing Event-Related Potentials to Communicate”
