Course Aims

This course aims to encourage intellectual exchange between students in biology and engineering with students in humanities and social science in the context of brain-machine interface. This course enables students to gain insight of the impact on human health care through medicine and technology, and to translate abstract scientific knowledge into working systems. After taking this course, students will be able to place the understanding of basic principles in biology and engineering in the broader context of societal needs, i.e. pop culture, technology transfer and legal regulation.
