Instructor: ============ Dr. Louai Al-Dayeh. Graduated with MD degree, received MS in Electrical Eng and PhD in Biomedical Eng from USC. Expert in the Medical Device industry with Boston Scientific in the niche field of MRI safety of patients with implants & medical imaging, medical devices & implants. Recording and analyzing EEG signals in animals can offer insight into brain activity. For example, a dog brain produces specific brain waves when it sees a treat, and other distinct brain waves when it sees its owner. This workshop will teach you how EEG can be done on dogs to detect their brain activity, as in when they see a treat, detect it and recognize it and let a prerecorded message play as if they talked. The learning experience includes understanding all the concepts needed as well as setting up a data collection device and Arduino based Machine Learning algorithm to interpret it. It is fun, educational and hands-on. This is a great introductory class to Biomedical Engineering - don't miss it!
Hours: M 2-4pm, Th 2-5pm Start date: Thursday June 13 Note: This class includes 4 hours lab time on a weekly basis Monday - Thursday.
additional info 2 additional meetings might be held on Saturdays to meet with canine volunteers who require petting and treats. It is very likely that many tails will be wagging during those meetings. These sessions are purposed to collect EEG data. DISCOUNTS: =========== Summer 2019 Interns m
