Power-Efficient High-Frequency Multi-Channel Neurostimulator
The 21st century will be the century in which we will unravel the intricacies of that final frontier, the brain. Driven by advances in microelectronics, computing and microsystem integration, it has now become possible to develop devices that effectively interface and interact with the nervous system. This programme aims at providing the technology for animal and clinical studies, such as neural recording, electrical neurostimulation, optogenetic stimulation and multi-modal neuromodulation to understand and listen to the brain better, in particular the cortex, the cerebellum and the thalamus.

ReaSONS 2 Demo: Realtime Sensing of Neural Signals Demonstrator

Demonstrator of recording tiny neural signals on top of the stimulus and artifact. NWO Demonstrator Grant.

REASONS – Realtime Sensing of Neural Signals

This project targets the development of a completely new readout system for measuring the so called electrically evoked compound action potential (eCAP) coming from the auditory nerve.

SINs - Smart Implantable Neurostimulators

In this research program we push the research and development of technology for research on and treatment of a multitude of brain disorders, a.o., tinnitus and addiction.
