Neuroengineering is broadly defined to include the modeling of neural and endocrine systems, neural networks, and complexity in physiological systems, evolutionary influences in biological control systems, neurocontrol, neurorobotics, and neuroprosthetics. This concentration focuses on the theory of neural signaling, as well as addressing issues that have a neuroscientific basis, such as locomotion and pattern generation, central control of movement, and the processing of sensory information. Students pursing this concentration will learn the fundamental theory of cellular potentials and chemical signaling, the Hodgkin Huxley description of action potential generation, circuit representations of neurons and be able to derive and integrate equations describing the circuit as well as design computer models. Upon graduation, students will be able to: Model specific aspects of neural systems; Understand control system theory as applied to neural systems; Understand how neuroengineering can be applied in clinical situations.
