Unlocking the mysteries of the brain

Unlocking the mysteries of the brain

Researchers in the Neural Engineering Lab at Mizzou Engineering are collaborating with neuroscientists to develop computational models aimed to boost our understanding of how the human brain works — a massive feat considering there are roughly 86 billion neurons in each of our heads. The group does this by understanding the firing of single neurons [...]
