Scientific advancements with High-density ECoG grids
At the department of Neurology and Neurosurgery of the UMC Utrecht Brain Center we use high-density ECoG grids to learn more about the brain. More specifically, we investigate how the brain controls hand movement and produces intelligible speech, and we develop cutting-edge tools to streamline signal acquisition, processing and interpretation.
High-density grid recordings are performed either intraoperative, during for example tumor resection awake surgery or during Epilepsy monitoring period at the UMC Utrecht.
