The goal of the workshop is to present state-of-the-art technological advances to both the neural prosthesis and DBS communities while encouraging interaction between these two groups to develop new collaborations to create therapies for human use. In addition, inclusion and showcasing of trainees is an important goal. Student poster presentations foster scientific exchange, networking, and communication among registrants, with 20 travel awards given to qualifying undergraduate, graduate or medical students, as well as postdoctoral fellows. One such interaction between student and principal investigator has resulted in the student becoming a postdoctoral fellow in the PI’s laboratory.
