Engage and Enable Blog

The aim of this blog is to show what’s happening at the Center for Neurotechnology among its faculty, student and staff members. To learn more about the center and its work, visit our Feature Stories page.


A Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)-affiliated team of faculty and student researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of Washington (UW) recently made a significant advance in the design of implantable fibers for studying neurons in the spinal cord.

The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) is a leader among National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) in actively ensuring accessibility of its physical spaces, activities and resources. In the process, the CSNE strives to welcome and engage people with disabilities while increasing awareness about their contributions in the engineering community.

The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) has recently formed partnerships with ArianRF, Embotic Technology, Neurotech LLC and Ripple. These are four innovative companies working in areas related to neural engineering, such as electronic hardware design, prosthetic research and development, electroencephalogram (EEG) support technology, and neural interface processing.
