We are dedicated to fostering a vibrant neurotechnology community at UC Berkeley. Join us for hackathons, workshops, talks, socials, and more!
Generally speaking, neurotechnology refers to any artificial means to interact with the workings of the brain.
At Neurotech@Berkeley we provide a forum to learn about the many technologies used in research and industry to collect and analyze signals from the brain. As a student club, we focus more on non-invasive techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). We aim to educate the community about the challenges and benefits of biosensing and neurotechnology, by providing them with a variety of biosensing hardware, along with support through regular meetups, workshops, and in-person help. We further aim to be the central repository for biosensing hardware, which students can rely on for hobby, class, hackathon, and other projects.
Every semester, Neurotech@Berkeley hosts a decal course related to neurotechnology. For Fall 2017, the decal is titled Neurotechnology Research Review Decal (NRRD), and will be focused on reading and discussing primary research papers related to neurotechnology.
Previously, Neurotech@Berkeley hosted the BCI decal, where students learned neurotech concepts through a series of labs.
