DO-IT Collaboration with the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering

Scott Bellman, DO-IT Staff

Over the last decade, the field of neural engineering has demonstrated to the world that a computer cursor, a wheelchair, or a prosthetic limb can be controlled using direct brain-machine and brain-computer neural signals. That means using your brain to control things in your environment. The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE), located in Russell Hall on the University of Washington campus, collaborates with partner universities and with DO-IT to facilitate advances in this exciting field. The CSNE has hosted DO-IT students as interns, summer researchers, facility consultants, and website accessibility experts. We have also hosted three large workshops at the CSNE.

DO-IT students who are interested in neural engineering and brain-computer interface can visit the CSNE website at The next DO-IT event at the CSNE, on February 7, 2014, is open to all DO-IT students, Ambassadors, and Mentors.
