On December 10, The InnerSpace Foundation hosted a meeting of a select group of scientists and engineers from a wide range of disciplines to discuss neuroengineering approaches for transferring information into and memory out of the brain. The meeting featured a roundtable discussion of the technical challenges of The InnerSpace Foundation's neuroengineering prize-based competitions, existing funding gaps, and underfunded areas of important research.

Meeting Program:

  • Introductory remarks by Pete Estep, Ph.D., Chairman of The InnerSpace Foundation
  • Accessing Memory by Serial Reconstruction, Randal A. Koene, Ph.D., Research Assistant Professor, Boston University
  • Neural Control Technologies and Uses Thereof, Edward S. Boyden, Ph.D., Leader, Neuroengineering and Neuromedia Group at MIT
  • Neural and Memory Prostheses, Theodore W. Berger, Ph.D., David Packard Professor of Engineering, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience, and Director of the Center for Neural Engineering at USC
  • Roundtable discussion
