DO-IT Collaboration with the Center for Neurotechnology

Scott Bellman, DO-IT Staff

Over the last decade, the field of neural engineering has demonstrated to the world that a computer cursor, a wheelchair, or a prosthetic limb can be controlled using direct brain-machine and brain-computer neural signals. That means using your brain to control things in your environment. The Center for Neurotechnology (CNT), located in Russell Hall on the University of Washington campus, collaborates with partner universities and with DO-IT to facilitate advances in this exciting field. The CNT has hosted DO-IT students as interns, summer researchers, facility consultants, and website accessibility experts. We have also hosted three large workshops at the CNT.

DO-IT students who are interested in neural engineering and brain-computer interface can visit the CNT website at The next DO-IT event at the CNT, on February 7, 2014, is open to all DO-IT students, Ambassadors, and Mentors. For more information about DO-IT's partnership with the CNT, contact Scott Bellman at or 206-685-3648 (v/TTY).
