Medical Devices and Interfaces (ECE 202)

Medical devices such as screening, diagnostic, and prosthetics are at cross-roads between biology, engineering, and medicine. This course equips students from engineering and sciences background with essential and solid foundations in the area of medical devices and their interfaces with the human body. The first part of this class will focus cellular and molecular biology and different transduction methods, such as electrochemical magnetic, and optical biosensors. The second part of the course will cover basic cellular and electrochemical processes that lead to membrane potentials and ionic currents, discuss electrical models for the conductance of nerve cells, extracellular and intracellular stimulation, and emphasize electrochemical and biological responses of the electrode-tissue interface. Neural probe technology materials and devices, brain-computer-interfaces sensor elements, and case examples of prosthetic implants will be overviewed.
