Premier conference on neurotechnology and deep brain stimulation to be held in Cleveland June 16-18
Date:6/5/2008

The conference will be held at the InterContinental Hotel and Bank of America Conference Center in Cleveland.

"Neural interfaces have already provided substantive benefits to many individuals. This conference will feature presentations from the most distinguished researchers in the field and will give participants the opportunity to share with each other the latest technological advances," said P.

"They are part of a larger local community distinguished for its research in this field, and we look forward to sharing greater Cleveland's many strengths with visiting scholars and students next week."

The neural interfaces research community consists of research investigators, supported by grants or contracts, who are working in areas that include functional neuromuscular/electrical stimulation auditory prosthesis, cortical prosthesis, neuromodulation, microelectrode array technology, brain computer/machine interfaces and other related areas. Conference attendance will be from a diverse international group representing the ba
