Neuroelectronic Systems


Neuro-Engineering is a scientific discipline that uses engineering techniques to understand, repair, replace, enhance, or treat the diseases of neural systems. (wikipedia)

For that purpose, we harness the methods and approaches of experimental and clinical neurosciences, biophysics, signal processing, computer sciences, and computational neurosciences to go for our ultimate goal, the chronic, bi-directional brain-machine interface and Intelligent Implants.

We are thus utilizing a systems engineering approach and touch a wide variety of different fields in our research.
