Neurotechnology and Biomechatronics

Chair: BSS

Introduction

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.

Research is performed across three levels:

  • The cellular and network level: neuro-electronic interfacing of live neural tissue on electrode substrates, learning and memory in cultured circuits, neural endcap prosthesis.
  • The human function level: neuromodulation and dynamic identification applied to pain, motor control and heart function; diagnosis, functional support and neurofeedback training in rehabilitation..
  • The health care level: Telemedicine: remote monitoring and remotely supervised treatment using wearable interfaces and ICT systems.
