    Neural network models of the brain
As part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Division in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, the Laboratory of Integrated Brain Imaging aims to accelerate neuroscience and artificial intelligence by developing novel tools to integrate neural imaging, recording, stimulation, and modeling.
