Listening to the symphony in your mind

Difficulty level

In this modules, users will learn about the different types of neurotechnology and how each of them works. This will be done through the metaphor of going to a symphony... in your brain. Like a symphony, brain processes emerge from collections of neural activity. This video encourages us to imagine ourselves moving to different areas in the concert hall to understand where different technologies interface. Once the concert ends, we talk about underlying neural mechanisms and technology that allow researchers and innovators to interact with the brain.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Types of BCIs: invasive, semi-invasive, and non-invasive
  • How BCIs record and stimulate the brain
