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…

CYP2D6 enzyme/allele test by the Roche Amplichip


The P450 cytochrome CYP2D6 enzyme is commonly used for metabolizing common psychotropic drugs. To understand the dynamics of this and other enzymes, clinicians have the Roche Amplichip as a tool. It had been approved by the FDA in 2004. See the two articles:…

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…

Brain-Computer Interface for stroke rehabilitation

g.tec performed initial tests with robotic feedback. A motor imagery based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is presented that is linked to a rehebilitation robot.

The BCI system is used to measure the activation of the sensorimotor cortex to control external supporting robotic devices such as exoskeletons or orthotic devices. The robotic device has the purpose to move the limbs of the patient and this activates again the sensorimotor cortex. The activation can be seen as ERD/ERS changes…

First Hyperscanning BCI experiment

A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is an interface between the human brain and a computer. It allows to control a computer and according to this any other device withouth manual interaction! You just use your thoughts instead of mouse and keyboard.Therefore the user’s brainwaves (EEG – Electroencephalogram) are measured and processed in real-time.

The g.tec Brain-Computer Interfaces work very well for a single person. As if that were not enough, g.tec went one step further and…

My new book, "Contradictions between Neuroscience and Religion".

I am very happy that "Contradictions" was exhibited in the Springer booth during the Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans.  The book shows that the brain itself accounts for all what we are, and that it is not necessary to postulate, like Descartes did the existence of the soul or any other supernatural substances.  The down side is that at our death, we will be back at the same state in which we were before we were born.  The show will be over!
