Topics include neuroimaging, diagnostics, motor rehabilitation,
affective computing, novel scientific tools, and novel therapeutics
including neuropharmaceuticals, neuromodulation, neuroprosthetics,
regenerative medicine, and more. Each class is devoted to a
specific topic area, exploring issues from the deeply technical
through the market opportunity. Working in small groups students
prepare a business plan executive summary for a new neurotechnology

Midterms Thursday, 10/30! And then home work due 11/6.
2. Remember also that on 11/6 your second "homework" is due -- writing a critique of each of the others' midterm presentations, evaluating feasibility and impact. We'll hold all the critiques confidential, but if you want to share your critique with a class member, feel free to do so yourself!

Announcement: homework #1, interviews of engineers/scientists
2. The investigators that you interview do not have to be at MIT. Last year, I would estimate that 1/6 of the interviews were done by phone, to professors, postdocs, or grad students, at other institutions.
These announcements will appear on the "Class Home" page on Stellar, for future reference.
