Biomedical Signals and Systems

Upcoming events

The central theme of the Biomedical Signals and Systems (BSS) group is Neural Engineering. The research focus is on interfacing with the neural system and (tele)monitoring and influencing body functions through such interfaces. The research program is embedded in the Techmed Centre. Remote Monitoring and Treatment is also embedded in the Digital Society Institute.

Research is performed across three levels

Cellular and Network Level

Human Function Level

Health Care Level

Neuro-electronic interfacing of live neural tissue on electrode substrates, learning and memory in cultured circuits, neural endcap prosthesis.

Neuromodulation and dynamic identification applied to pain, motor control and heart function; diagnosis, functional support and neurofeedback training in rehabilitation

Telemedicine: remote monitoring and remotely supervised treatment using wearable interfaces and ICT systems.
