With new advances in tiny low-power electronics, information technology, and neurosciences, researchers can now interact with living nervous systems in ways that reveal how they compute and how decisions are made. At the October Tacoma Science Café, join UW’s Tom Daniel, Ph.D., to explore this intersection of nervous systems, computers, and engineering, including how we can build things that help people with mobility disorders or those that are inspired by living computers.
