Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Large scale visualization on the Powerwall.
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

BIOEN 7870-001 NERG

Welcome to the Neural Engineering Research Group (NERG) course and presentation series for the 2018-2019 academic year.

NERG is moderated by Dr. Christopher Butson, PhD in the Department of Bioengineering and the Scientific Computing & Imaging (SCI) Institute.

Each student who works in a neural engineering lab (not just those taking the course) is expected to present during every academic year.

NERG usually meets every other week during the spring and fall semesters.
