Our understanding and treatment of the nervous system is at a cross-roads. Scientific advance requires technological advance, and technological advance is driven by scientific and clinical need. Synthesis of science and technology is imperative.
Neuroscience and Neuroengineering research and education are found across multiple Schools and Colleges at Georgia Tech and span a wide range of interests, many of which pivot on cutting-edge technology. We develop and translate interdisciplinary and innovative solutions to the challenges of understanding the complexity of the nervous system, treating neurological diseases and injuries, and augmenting neural function.
What makes GTNeuro special? GTNeuro is a dynamic and exciting community that fosters our existing programs and catalyzes new collaborative directions within Georgia Tech and with the broader Neuroscience and Neuroengineering communities. We use quantitative, systems-level, and integrative approaches to study the most complex human organ—the brain—and the equally complex spinal cord and peripheral nervous system, which together control every system in the body. Among our research programs you will find cutting-edge concepts and technologies for understanding such things as multisensory integration and novel combination repair strategies, unraveling the complex algorithms of the brain from seemingly simple repetitive functions to storing memories, and probing the brain through functional imaging. Yes, we can do that!
