The 4th International Congress on Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics – NEUROTECHNIX 2016

Contributed by: INSTICC

The first research works on neurotechnology can be dated back nearly half a century, but it is in the twenty-first century that most significant advances are being witnessed. Neurotechnology shows a very high potential of enhancing human activities, involving technologies such as neural rehabilitation, neural prosthesis, neuromodulation, neurosensing and diagnosis, and other combinations of neurological and biomedical knowledge with engineering technologies.

Scope:
The first research works on neurotechnology can be dated back nearly half a century, but it is in the XXI century that most significant advances are being witnessed. Neurotechnology shows a very high potential of enhancing human activities, involving technologies such as neural rehabilitation, neural prosthesis, neuromodulation, neurosensing and diagnosis, and other combinations of neurological and biomedical knowledge with engineering technologies.

NEUROTECHNIX 2016 will be held in conjunction with icSPORTS 2016.
