There is an increasing interest and need in the development and use of advanced neuroscience and neuromodulation technologies to monitor and control brain activities to treat a wide range of neurological disorders, including movement-related disorders, pain, epilepsy, and depression. Advancements in hardware precision and size, neural interfaces, digital tools, and our fundamental understanding of the nervous system in health and disease suggests that the field is primed to see rapid growth and innovation in the coming years. The 2020 IEEE Brain Workshop on Advanced NeuroTechnologies will highlight the development of novel technological innovations, covering both invasive and non-invasive approaches. Following the spectrum of field advancements in hardware, neuroscience, and data science, the conference will focus on technologies that leverage these advancements and have demonstrated pre-clinical and clinical results in translational neural engineering. Invited talks will be presented by internationally renowned experts in industry and academia. A poster session will provide presentation opportunities for young researchers. This workshop will provide a unique interactive and networking platform to encourage exchange of ideas with leading researchers and medical and industry professionals.
