Highlight on Neural Prosthetic Systems: NSF IGERT Video Competition

The talented graduate students of Krishna Shenoy's Neural Prosthetic Systems Lab (Dan, Cora, Eric, Niru and Sergey) have made a video for the NSF IGERT Video and Poster Competition. Here is a link to their video: http://posterhall.org/igert2013/posters/432

I think it's fantastic. If you enjoy it as much as I did, consider "voting" for it under the Public Choice tab (and if you're part of IGERT / MBC, you can also log in and vote under the "Community Choice" tab). The Shenoy Lab team would really appreciate it.

The NSF IGERT 2013 Video & Poster Competition

The competition features over 100 presentations each made by a student or a team of students nominated from different IGERT Ph.D. programs. The work presented often transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries and addresses complex research problems of significant scientific and societal importance. While the presenters have been asked to make their posters for a technical/scientific audience, their videos are to be geared toward a more general, non-technical/non-scientific audience.
