The BRAIN Center
The Building Reliable Advances and Innovation in Neurotechnology (BRAIN) Center is an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center at Arizona State University (ASU) and the University of Houston (UH). This partnership will allow rigorous testing of efficacy, safety and long-term reliability of neurotechnology that would not be otherwise possible within the traditional ‘silos’ of academic, industry, regulatory and clinical communities.
The BRAIN Center will develop safe, effective and affordable personalized neurotechnologies for diagnostics, restoration, enhancement, and rehabilitation of sensory, motor, affective and cognitive functions. This mission will be pursued by supporting innovative interdisciplinary research across the multiple dimensions of brain function and behavior with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life.
The BRAIN Center offers path-breaking courses in the ethics and law of biomedical technology development

In June, a diverse group of engineers, biomedical researchers, artists and clinicians gathered in Cancun, Mexico for the 2019 International Graphonomics Conference on Mobile Brain-Body Imaging, Neuroscience of Art, Innovation and Creativity. Each year, participants gather to explore the intersection of arts and science through the lens of contemporary and portable neuroimaging. These innovative technologies, commonly referred to as Mobile Brain-Body Imaging (MoBI), are poised to accelerate neuroaesthetics and biomedical research.
Graduate trainees (Masters, PhDs, Post-Doctorate, Medical) are invited to apply to the Neurotechnology Entrepreneurship Workshop hosted in Phoenix, Arizona from December 13-15, 2019. This workshop will provide intensive and rigorous training in the areas of: ideation,...
