NeurotechEU Autumn School in Lille, October 18-20, 2023

“The privilege of attending the informative NeurotechEU Autumn School on Closed Loop Neurotechnologies: From Sensors to Application, from 18-20 October 2023 in Lille, France, is undoubtedly a valuable experience to gain more knowledge and updates of cutting-edge neurotechnology. In addition to the lectures and talks which introduced the newest studies and methodologies of brain-computer interfaces and neurofeedback, the meeting and discussion amongst fellow academics and researchers in similar fields from different countries are, to me, inspirational as well as perspective broadening. These discussions provide us students another opportunity to endlessly nurture potential ideas and ethical consideration for future research work.”
