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!

Natbrainlab 11th Workshop including advanced Spherical deconvolution tractography

Dear all,
The 11th Neuroanatomy and Tractography workshop will be held in London on the 28-30 November 201
2. This workshop intends to help scientists to develop and optimise strategies for DTI datasets analysis, tractography and advanced spherical deconvolution tractography

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

The participants will be able to work on their own datasets and receive advice from…

Disorders of Consciousness: How Should Clinicians Respond to New Therapeutic Interventions?

New tools have confirmed high rates of misdiagnosis of patients with chronic disorders of consciousness, such as the vegetative state. An increasing number of patients' families wish to use these novel techniques for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. An international team of researchers, including Dr. Éric Racine, researcher at the IRCM, analyzed the clinical, social and ethical issues that clinicians are now facing. Their article is published in the August…

Neural basis of stuttering

The neural basis of stuttering has to do with the integration of auditory information with speech-production commands. Previous studies show that stutterers’ produce a weaker-than-normal compensatory response while processing auditory feedback during speech. In this study they manipulated auditory feedback in order to see if weak compensatory responses are due to problems hearing feedback or using feedback. What they found is that stutterers’…

The role of prediction in social neuroscience (FREE ARTICLE DOWNLOAD)

Research has shown that the brain is constantly making predictions about future events. Theories of prediction in perception, action and learning suggest that the brain serves to reduce the discrepancies between expectation and actual experience, i.e., by reducing the prediction error.…

Atlas of human brain connections is finally out!

One of the major challenges of modern neuroscience is to define the complex pattern of neural connections that underlie cognition and behaviour. Brain connections have been investigated extensively in many animal species, including monkeys. Until recently, however, we have been unable to verify their…

Labor plans for BCI/ECoG and EP available...

Specifc components (hardware and software) are needed for different fields of research. There are now three plans available which show the recommended setup for:

#Brain-Computer Interface research

#ECoG experiments

#Evoked Potential experiments

The plans give a great overview of how to equip your lab and they also show how you can use the hard- and software from gtec.

You can see which components are needed, how they are connected and how to arrange the…
