Neural Engineering

Michigan has been at the forefront of neurotechnology since the 1970s, when Ken Wise, now a professor emeritus in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Michigan, invented the silicon neural probe. Today a cluster of innovative, accomplished faculty is driving the field forward, working side-by-side with clinicians in the U-M Medical School to focus on translational applications to improve the lives of patients.
