I’ve been interested in brain-computer interfaces for a while, and last summer I finally decided to do something about it. I’ve read through the Fundamental Neuroscience, The Hippocampus, and a bunch of other books and review papers. Now I think I have a basic grasp of what’s going on in the brain, and enough knowledge to be able to read journals, which I intend to keep doing.
What I really lack now is engineering knowledge. I’ve graduated from university with an applied math degree, and then spent 13 years in the workforce, first as a quant analyst at a hedge fund and then as a software developer and a technical lead. In that time, I had zero opportunity to learn or use electrical engineering, and now I need to make that up.
This is intended to plug that hole.
