Current and future applications of non-invasive and invasive BCIs.
Brain-computer interface technology is used for high impact medical applications: stroke rehabilitation, assessment and communication with patients with disorders of consciousness and locked-in patients, functional mapping of the eloquent cortex for neurosurgery and for neuroscience. The talk will highlight recent developments and future applications like avatar control with invasive and non-invasive BCIs.
Christoph Guger studies biomedical engineering at the University of Technology Graz and Johns Hopkins University in the US. He is designing real-time brain-computer interfaces for rehabilitation, assessment, communication and functional mapping. He founded g.tec medical engineering GmbH in order to develop BCI neurotechnology for research and medical applications.
