National and International Projects
At the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the UMC Utrecht Brain Center we elucidate the neuronal mechanisms underlying human brain function in order to understand, diagnose and treat patients with mental disorders and with afflictions of the central and peripheral nervous system.
We aim to understand the relationship between electrical, metabolic, cerebrovascular and neurochemical processes of neuronal populations on the one hand, and normal and abnormal behaviour on the other hand. To that end, we focus both on methodology and application in brain imaging research.
- NeuroStars (2016-2019):
Eurostars 2 (Horizon 2020) grant in collaboration with UMC Utrecht on augmented, accurate, full colour and interactive 3D Brain Visualizer that combines multiple neuro-imaging sources to improve brain visualization.
- iConnect (2014-2018):
ERC advance grant awarded to Nick Ramsey. The iCONNECT project aimed at designing a new generation of implantable BCIs based on high-density ECoG grids. In this project we learned about decoding hand movements and speech from the sensorimotor cortex by combining ECoG and fMRI signals.
- NemoFoil (2016-2017):
In NeMoFoil the feasibility of wireless grids for human use will be determined. The concept entails embedding of microelectronics for signal amplification, AD conversion and wireless transfer, together with the electrodes in a thin sheet, a ‘foil’.
