One of the major objectives of Medicine and Biological Sciences has been for years to understand how the human central nervous system works, which has encouraged the development of neurosciences and new research methods. One of them is Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) which studies the intersection between neurosciences, biomedical imaging and computational intelligence for the development of new technologies, behaviour studies, neurologic rehabilitation and clinical treatment of psychiatric diseases. This interdisciplinary approach tries to answer: Can we change specific sensations, perception and action by modulation the brain activity? What are they and how can we use them?
The research lines in the Institute are: Multimodal imaging and BCI, research and treatment of emotional disorders, neurorehabilitation of movement disorders and brain connectomics.
