million grant brings together experts in sensors, electronics, data analysis, neuroscience

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -A team of experts in sensors, electronics, data analysis and neuroscience has been awarded a $5 million grant to help unravel mysteries of the brain. The University of Michigan announced Tuesday that it is leading the project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation. The effort seeks to stimulate and sense brain activity as well as reconstruct neural circuits with computer simulations. The effort also will seek to train a group of neuroscientists and engineers from around the world. Kensall Wise, professor emeritus and a co-leader of the project, says in a statement that advances in neural implant technology could lead to better treatments for conditions including Parkinson’s disease, deafness, blindness, paralysis and depression. The grant was awarded under the Partnerships for International Research and Education…
