Early exploration of neural systems focused on understanding how neural systems work at the cellular, tissue, and system levels, and engineering methodologies were developed to detect, process, and model these neural signals. Recently, tremendous progress has been made in the field of neural engineering, not only understanding the mechanism, detection, and processing of the neural signals, but also on restoring the impaired neural systems functions and interfacing the neural systems with artificial devices and machines.
