From understanding how the brain controls movement
to new medical technology for paralyzed people
Interdisciplinary research conducted at the new Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Freiburg, in cooperation with the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg and the University Clinics, is investigating a new brain-machine interface (BMI) technology based on electrodes placed on the surface of the brain. This technology minimizes medical risks while still providing high signal quality. In future people with severe paralysis may use this technology to regain part of their movement control.
