In the Fallingwater house, artificial and natural are bonding together in harmony, creating one of humankind’s most beautiful masterpieces. After more than 80 years, the water still doesn’t give up. Moisture, flooding, and leaks are part of the daily relationship between nature and men’s manufacture. To obtain and keep harmony, the artificial continuously needs to respect, listen, and adapt to the natural.

Research in Neural Engineering shares the same goal (harmony), the same issues (e.g., “leaks” in electrode–tissues interface ), and the same method (respect, listening, adaptation)
