Understanding the Central Nervous System

The paths to understanding are both wired and wireless


At the Global Center for Neurological Networks, we examine the central nervous system and, in particular, the human brain, optic nerves and spinal cord, from a unique perspective that is at the intersection of Medicine and Engineering. We bring more than 45 years of experience in Telecommunications, Electrical Engineering, and Bioengineering to bear in finding solutions to unlock the mysteries of the central nervous system and mitigate neurological dysfunction through non-invasive, or minimally invasive, non-drug therapeutics. 

The Global Center for Neurological Networks is a collaboration of research and development laboratories created in 1988 in Canada and 1998 in the United States. The Global Center for Neurological Networks was founded by Dr. Salvatore Domenic Morgera, a Fellow of both the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  Dr. Sal is a firm believer in multidisciplinary research and development and an expert in wireless telecommunications networks and the bioengineering of neurological systems.

Recent recognition of the Global Center for Neurological Networks includes:

  • Innovation and Discovery Award, Milan, August 2015.
  • Invited European Lecture Series, Fall 2015.
  • Finalist, Alcatel-Lucent Bell Laboratories Prize Competition, December 2015.
  • Invited Speaker, Society of Brain Mapping & Therapeutics Congress, Miami, April 2016.

The video to the right describes the crosstalk that occurs between nerve fibers in central nervous system nerve tracts, such as the brain and optic nerves.  The phenomenon that enables this crosstalk is a spatial-temporal electric near-field.  This electric near-field creates a smart, spatial-temporal neurological network that can be tuned to mitigate neurological dysfunction.

 


Cutting-Edge Research

We are performing cutting-edge research in the area of brain mapping and therapeutics.  Our research and development laboratories allow state-of-the-art highly sophisticated in silico and in vitro simulation, verification and validation.


Nanoscale Development

Our cutting-edge research and development programs are always pushing boundaries.  They include nanoscale development of artificial myelinated nerve fibers and nerves consisting of millions of tightly and tortuously wound nerve fibers.   


Amazing Results

Our research and development leads to paradigm shifts in the understanding of brain function and in the treatment of neurological dysfunction.  Our commitment to societal needs requires that we settle for nothing less.
