IEN Center for Human-Centric Interfaces and Engineering Guest Lecture | Current & Future Applications of BCIs
Christoph Guger | Co-Founder of g.tech Medical Engineering

Abstract: Research groups all over the world have been working enthusiastically on Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), which provide a direct connection from the human brain to a computer. Dr. Guger will discuss how BCIs translate brain activity into control signals for numerous applications, including tools to help severely disabled users communicate and improve their quality of life. BCIs have been used to restore movement, assess cognitive functioning, map functions of the brain and provide communication and environmental control.

Bio: Christoph Guger studied electrical and biomedical engineering at the University of Technology Graz in Austria and Johns Hopkins University in the USA and received his PhD in 1999. In 1999 he started the company g.tec which was now branches in Austria, Spain, the USA and Hong Kong. g.tec produces high-quality neurotechnology and real-time brain computer interfaces for the research, medical and consumer market. The company is active in many international research projects about brain-computer interfacing, neuromodulation, stroke rehabilitation, assessment and communication with patients with disorders of consciousness and high-gamma mapping in epilepsy and tumor patients.
