BrainCon - Development of a multifunctional platform for long-term recording and stimulation of the brain - Braincon

Project description

The project aims at developing a neurotechnological platform for long-term measuring and stimulating brain activity. The platform character of this system opens up a wide variety of applications in therapy, rehabilitation and assistive technology. The platform consists of 3 components: (1) A foil electrode on the brain surface measures electrical activity that (2) An intelligent implant communicates wireless through the skin to (3) A software that processes the data for application in real-time. The system can also work the other way around: In this case, driven by the software the implant is generating stimulation impulses that the electrode brings to the brain surface.
