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 MIRA Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine. Remote Monitoring and Treatment is also embedded in the CTIT Center for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT).
Research is performed across three levels
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.
