Brainpainting - paint by thoughts!

When art overcomes disabilities...

g.tec integrates a landmark painting application into intendix® personal Brain-Computer Interface.

Before children start to write, they first learn to draw. Drawing is one of the oldest techniques humans have been using to communicate and visualize ideas, knowledge and emotions. There are cave paintings made 40,000 years ago, and people still use painting to express things that cannot be communicated through…

Modeling Brain-Computer Interfaces

We discern, from the everyday practices we engage in, essence[s] of this or that practice and use these essences to guide our practices as we see fit.  That’s all there’s to math.

Consider, for example, the practice of translation with which we all are quite familiar, by virtue of actually participating in the practice of translation.  Having looked at the Telugu [language] meaning of one too many English words in a English --> Telugu…

[cortiQ] Rapid functional mapping of the cortex using ECoG!

The new cortiQ system version 1.0 is now available.

CortiQ is a system for rapid functional mapping of the cortex using the electrocorticogram (ECoG).

It was developed to:

#optimize surgical procedures

#minimize the burdon for the patient

#reduce risk for patients

#reduce hostpial time and costs

We are happy to announce version 1.0!…

Collaborator in Brain Research

I am an associate professor at Saint Peter’s University.  My research interest is in cognitive modeling.  The research is in semantic modeling of language in computational linguistics and in brain-style modeling.  

As part of my dissertation at Stevens Institute of Technology I developed a mathematical technique that I use in my linguistic research.   The technique is able to determine partial semantics of sentences. 


I believe that a similar type of technique could be used…

A new study shows that reward and punishment can influence the mirror neuron related activity in the brain. Therefore the degree to which we simulate others' actions could be driven by the reward values we associate with the actions, which is likely to be different depending upon the context. This provides neural evidence that our ability to learn social skills during development through observing others' behaviour is also affected by how much we value others' behaviour.…

cortiQ - rapid functional mapping of the cortex using the electrocorticogram (ECoG)

g.tec developed a system for rapid functional mapping of the cortex using the electrocorticogram (ECoG).

The system generates a personalized functional map of the cerebral cortex and can be operated

at the patient's bedside. It easily integrates with your existing clinical monitoring system and

uses a brain-mapping system that works in real-time.

The system

  • optimizes surgical procedures and
  • minimizes the burden and the risk for the patient as well…

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that The 12th Neuroanatomy and Tractography workshop will be held in London between the 8-10th February 2013 at the Gordon Museum in London. This workshop helps scientists to develop and optimise strategies for DTI datasets acquisition, analysis, tractography as well as advanced spherical deconvolution tractography. 

The number of participants is very limited for personal 1:1 tutoring. 

The participants will be able to work on their…
