Dr. Brian Litt’s “Engineering the Next Generation of Brain Scientists” Featured in the Reviews on Neuroengineering Issue of Neuron

New technologies to probe the nervous system are propelling innovation and discovery at blinding speed, but are our trainees prepared to maximize this power? The growing role of engineering in research, such as materials, computing, electronics, and devices, compels us to rethink neuroscience education. Core technology requirements, cross-disciplinary education, open-source resources, and experiential learning are new ways we can efficiently equip future leaders to make the next disruptive discoveries.
