Neuroengineering is a growing field bringing together the study of biology, psychology, bioengineering, chemical engineering, mathematics and neuroscience to better understand, repair, heal, and enhance the neural systems. It is the intersection of the biological and non-living constructs and how those can work together.
Disciplines, or concentrations, within neuroengineering include:
- Neural imaging
- Neural interfaces
- Neural regrowth and repair
- Neural tissue regeneration
- Neural networks
- Neural prostheses
- Biomolecular therapies
