Research Directions

Neurotechnological advances provide us with increasingly powerful devices to interface brain tissue and computational hardware for potential neuroprosthetic and neurorehabilitative applications in severely handicapped patients after stroke, spinal-cord injuries or neurodegenerative diseases.

In experimental settings, these brain-computer-interfaces (BCI) allow us to record and/or stimulate cortical circuits in order to control robotic arms or to restore motor function. Nonetheless, widespread clinical application is limited yet due to variable stability and performance of current BCI strategies in humans.

This research group strives to study real-time, closed-loop approaches of recording and stimulation in order to evaluate adaptive neuromodulation strategies with implanted BCI for neurorehabilitation of function and to translate this know-how into clinical use.
