Professor Anand Raghunathan is spending the year at a new brain research center in India to explore the interface between neuroscience and engineering to learn more about how the brain works, and how this knowledge can be applied to improve computer systems. The findings could help drive technological advances and the creation of new engineering tools to study the brain.
