neurotechnology

[‚nu̇·rō·tek′näl·ə·jē]
(engineering)
The application of microfabricated devices to achieve direct contact with the electrically active cells of the nervous system (neurons).

neurotechnology

The examination of the human brain in order to determine how the nervous system operates. Neurotechnology employs MRI, CAT scan, EEG and other scanning technologies. "Neuropharmacology" uses neurotechnology to study the effects of how drugs, nutrients and food change the brain's behavior. See neuroinformatics and ANN.
