Abstract : This third annual report provides an overview of the research activities carried on in the Center for Neural Engineering (CNE) comprising consortium partners: Tennessee State University (TSU), Meharry Medical College (MMC), Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). A team of eight (8) researchers along with eight (8) undergraduates, six (6) graduates and one (1) Ph.D student from MMC conducted research at the Center. The Center conducted research in Neural computation using the experimental data on evoked potential from rat's auditor cortex, and on the performance of a neural network designed to perform a memory-based spatial navigation task, using data from hippocampal region. CNE also applied various neural network architectures and algorithms in the areas of auditory response, speech coding, neuromuscular signal decomposition and prothesis control, sensory motor control systems and intelligent aircraft control system. As a spin-off CNE was awarded a technology transfer research project from NASA in robotics under the STTR initiative.
