Horch and Dillon. The book is out of print, but an electronic copy is available. Course Objective: The objective of this course is to examine the system level tradeoffs in neural implant design. To do this, we consider subcomponents in detail and discuss how design choices constrain the rest of the system. Special emphasis is placed on the neural interface (electrodes) since this interface can severely constrain the system. We
