Abstract : This Fourth annual Report provides an overview of the research activities in the Center for Neural Engineering (CNE) comprising consortium partners: Tennessee State University (TSU), Caltech, Meharry Medical College (MMC), North East Ohio Universities College of Medicine (NEOUCOM), Oak Ridge National Laboratior (ORNL), and the University of Southwest Louisiana (USL). MMC and EOUCOM provided the experimental data. A team of eight (8) researchers along with (5) undergraduate students and twelve (12) graduate students conducted research at the Center. The CNE also supported a Ph.D student at NEOUCOM. CNE conducted research in various aspects of neural computation and applied these techniques to dynamic control aircraft, (helicopter), signal classification (image processing), spatial navigation (mobile robot) medical diagnosis and oscillatory hippocampal network (spatial information processing). The research led to the completion of three Masters Theses and three senior projects; one book chapter, four referenced chapters, six non-referenced conference papers and three new grants in the areas of communication, condition based maintenance and data acquisition system for medical diagnosis.
