Neural Prostheses

I am reminded by the Memory and Database blog to keep up with some old references. Theodore Berger of the USC Department of Biomedical Engineering was much mentioned in 2003 when he announced plans for a research programme studying technological memory augmentations. New Scientist article, World’s first brain prosthesis revealed from 2003 here.

Bergman, with Dennis L. Glanzman, has edited a collection of papers entitled, Towards Replacement Parts for the Brain. Implantable Biomimetic Electronics as Neural Prostheses (2005: MIT Press ). See the MIT Press website for the contents and sample chapters. Only available as hardback I’m afraid. For everyone considering a career change one interesting discussion addresses the the contents of syllabi for courses on neural engineering.
