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. However, it is not yet indicated as a standard treatment due to major scientific limitations:… 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 deep convolutional neural network (DCNN) with a four-layer architecture combining filtering and pooling, which we… 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 from a few minutes of eyes-closed resting electroencephalography data (EEG) collected at baseline from idiopathic… 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 particular has dramatically increased in recent years. However, its mechanisms of action remain only partially… 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 as PCs, cell phones and smart home devices, with all of them integrated in a… 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 the destination, and decomposing their actions, physiological and even emotional state into a stream of… 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 fingerprints and face, are vulnerable to direct (spoof) attacks. Direct attacks are performed by falsifying… 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 main approaches: 1. Research on video compression techniques. 2. Research on modulation and detection techniques…. Continue Reading →
