Medical Definition of neuroengineering
: the application of engineering principles and techniques to the field of neuroscience especially to study, restore, or enhance nervous system function ◆The focus of neuroengineering includes neuroimaging, creation of neural tissue, establishment of direct pathways between the brain and a computer, and use of implantable devices to restore sensory, motor, or cognitive function. Among his other breakthroughs in neuroengineering is a robotic arm that can be controlled with signals from the brain just as the body operates.—Sarah Avery, The Herald (Rock Hill, South Carolina), 22 Mar. 2009
