Novel Neurotechnologies and Their Applications
Host: Prof. George Malliaras, University of Cambridge
BrainCom is a collaborative research project that aims to develop a new generation of neuroprosthetic devices for large-scale and high density recording and stimulation of the human cortex, suitable to explore and repair high-level cognitive functions. Since one of the most invalidating neurospychological conditions is arguably the impossibility to communicate with others, BrainCom primarily focuses on the restoration of speech and communication in aphasic patients suffering from upper spinal cord, brainstem or brain damage. To target broadly distributed neural systems as the language network, BrainCom will use novel electronic technologies based on nanomaterials to design ultra-flexible cortical and intracortical implants adapted to large-scale highdensity recording and stimulation.
