On October 21, Kevin Xu and Li Li were invited to visit Chen Neuroscience Research Building (CNRB) and Kevin Xu Neurotechnology Lab. Professor Steve Mayo, Head of Department of Biological and Biological Engineering of Caltech, accompanied them throughout their visit. Professor Daniel Wagenaar, Director of the Kevin Xu Neurotechnology Lab, showed their advanced equipment for simulating neural experiment. The CNRB serves as an interdisciplinary brain research hub for the Kevin Xu Neurotechnology Lab.
2In 2018, Kevin Xu was invited to visit Caltech; in January 2019, the Kevin Xu Neurotechnology Lab was established in Caltech, dedicated to finding new solutions for neuroscientists to solve their equipment problems; during the unveiling ceremony of CNRB in 2021, the President of Caltech and Tianqiao Chen delivered speeches to thank Kevin Xu and Li Li for their strong support. In May of 2021, the Caltech published an article titled "Building Neural Network" to introduce the Kevin Xu Neurotechnology Lab.
