The aim of this course is to give a broad overview of neural engineering concepts and principles for recording outgoing (efferent) and generating ingoing (afferent) neural signals. These concepts form the basis for neural interfaces or human-machine interfaces. This area is interdisciplinary and encompasses the fields of neuroscience, physiology, signalprocessing, machine learning and robotics. The course will give insights into existing and future neural interfaces, neural prostheses and neurorobotics.
