Biomedical Micor/Nano Integrated Systems Based on Semiconductor Technology


Toru Tanaka


Semiconductor neural engineering is a discipline that uses semiconductor process/device/circuit technologies to further understand the properties of neural systems and to create novel fusion systems of living bodies and machines. Our goals are to establish semiconductor neural engineering and develop biomedical micro/nano integrated systems through research including Intelligent neural probes and brain-machine interface, a Fully-implantable retinal prosthesis system, and 3D integration technology and analog/digital IC design.
