Jim Cavuoto runs Neurotech Reports where he seeks to educate the industry and public concerning neurotechnology and neuroprosthetics. Cavuoto studied at Case Western University as a biomedical engineering student and began writing about neurotechnology as an undergraduate student. His organization serves as an information source for four fields of neurotechnology: neuromodulation, neuroprosthetics, neurosensing, and neurorehabilitation; a yearly growth report and weekly newsletter is provided by Neurotech Reports. His website can be found at www.neurotechreports.com.
