Galvani: controlling epileptic brain networks with computationally optimized weak electric fields

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder affecting 65 million people worldwide. Pharmacological treatments or surgery are ineffective in one-third of the cases – 19 million people.  Recent findings indicate that non-invasive brain transcranial current stimulation (tCS/tES) is safe and of therapeutic promise in epilepsy. … Continue reading

Deep learning to improve clinical diagnosis of ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a heterogeneous neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 5% of the pediatric and adult population worldwide. The diagnosis remains essentially clinical, based on history and exam, with no available biomarkers. In this paper, we describe a … Continue reading

Deep Learning With EEG Spectrograms in RBD

Deep Learning With EEG Spectrograms in Rapid Eye Movement Behavior Disorder REM Behavior Disorder (RBD) is now recognized as the prodromal stage of α-synucleinopathies such as Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this paper, we describe deep learning models for diagnosis/prognosis derived … Continue reading

Neuromodulation of executive functions

tDCS to the left DLPFC modulates cognitive and physiological correlates of executive function in a state-dependent manner Background The use of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to study anatomical and physiological dynamics and circuits supporting cognition and executive functions in … Continue reading

AsTeRICS

The goal of AsTeRICS (Assistive Technology Rapid Integration & Construction Set) is to develop a construction set for assistive technologies which can be adapted to the motor abilities of end-users. AsTeRICS is intended to allow access to different devices such … Continue reading

Beaming

BEAMING is the process of instantaneously transporting people (visitors) from one physical place in the world to another (the destination) so that they can interact with the local people there. This is achieved through shifting their means for perception into … Continue reading

Tabula Rasa

The TABULA RASA project will address some of the issues of direct (spoofing) attacks to trusted biometric systems. This is an issue that needs to be addressed urgently because it has recently been shown that conventional biometric techniques, such as … Continue reading

Towards underwater video transmission

Towards Underwater Video Transmission addresses the implementation of an acoustic OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing) system for underwater video transmissions aimed to work over short distance links, with short delays and relatively high available bandwidth. This work includes research on four … Continue reading
