A universal port for the brain
The team is creating a smart port to the brain that will use artificial intelligence to selectively stimulate and record from the brain

A leader of transformative advances in neural sciences
As the birthplace of artificial intelligence and cognitive psychology, CMU brain scientists have had real-world impact for over 50 years.
From the creation of some of the first cognitive tutors, to the development of the Jeopardy-winning Watson, to founding a ground-breaking doctoral program in neural computation, to recent cutting-edge work on the genetic basis of autism, Carnegie Mellon has been, and will continue to be, a leader in the study of brain and behavior.
And our expertise doesn't stop at technology. World-renowned faculty such as Allen Newell, Herbert Simon, John Anderson and Raj Reddy all helped shape modern cognitive psychology.
At the same time, seminal collaborations between psychologists and computer scientists gave rise to the field of artificial intelligence.
Today, partnerships between CMU neuroscientists, psychologists, statisticians, computer scientists and engineers leave us poised to make similar groundbreaking accomplishments.

Congratulations to Maysam Chamanzar who, along with his team, has received a National Institues of Health R01 grant for this project! Chamanzar describes the smart dura implant as a “universal port into the brain.” @CMU_ECE @cmu_bme @CMUEngineering https://t.co/Bd7dyeDt27— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) January 12, 2021
“I have dedicated my career to understanding the cognitive processes by which people make decisions in dynamic environments,” said Gonzalez, a research professor in Social and Decision Sciences at CMU. @CotyGonzalez12 https://t.co/OkH3CcUfuU— Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute (@cmuneurosci) January 7, 2021
