Puerto Rican neuroscientist and graduate student David Schwarz is part of Walk Again (Andar du Novo), a project that will allow a paraplegic Brazilian teen to control a robotic exoskeleton with their mind to execute the inaugural kick at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

This event will be historical for many reasons. First, it is the culmination of years of research and the collective work of hundreds of scientists around the world, from engineers, to computer scientists, to neuroscientists.

The field of brain-machine interfaces has made great leaps in its understanding of the brain, how its codes and interprets information and how to use that knowledge to "connect" brains and machines.

In this article, David Schwarz, graduate student in the Nicolelis Lab at Duke, one of the world leaders in brain-machine interfaces, explains some recent advances in the field, what they mean and the road ahead.

Searching for a job!

Jessenia Yaris Laguna Torres's picture

Hi there! 

Unfortunately I have no more funding to finish my graduate studies, so I have to search for a job so I can save what I need to finish my PhD. I’m wondering if anyone can help me in this search and contact me if there’s any opportunity for me that you know.

Attached is my most recent resume. 

Sincerely,

Jessenia Yaris Laguna Torres, BS
