ASU, Barrow Neurological Institute partner to advance neuroengineering
The internationally prominent Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix is joining ASU to pursue innovations in technology and therapies to improve brain and spinal cord function for people with neurological disorders. The Fulton Schools will be a key participant in the endeavor. Professor Kyle Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools, says the partnership offers an opportunity to achieve a unique convergence of engineering and neuroscience that could have dramatic impacts on medical advances. Squires says the goals include “reverse-engineering” of the brain, which could reveal information to guide development of improved rehabilitation strategies.
