Brains-Computers-Machines: Teaching resources for science educators

A new article published this month in CBE–Life Sciences Education by Eric H. Chudler and Laughing Crow Curriculum founder Kristen Clapper Bergsman provides supports to secondary science teachers with an interest in bringing neural engineering content into their classrooms. “Brains-Computers-Machines: Neural Engineering in Science Classrooms” highlights internet-based teaching resources on the following topics:

  • Neural Engineering
  • Complex Systems & Neural Networks
  • Biosignals
  • Sensors
  • Neuroprosthetics (including prosthetic limbs, cochlear implants, retinal implants, and deep brain simulation)
  • Neuroethics
  • Career links

The article is described by CBE-Life Sciences Education as: “Neural engineering is an emerging field of high relevance to students, teachers, and the general public. This Feature presents online resources that educators and scientists can use to introduce students to neural engineering and to integrate core ideas from the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, computer science, and engineering into the classroom.”
