Brain signal decoding
The Institute of Neural Engineering at Graz University of Technology is an internationally renowned research institution with focus on brain-computer communication and dynamics of brain oscillations. We have extensive expertise in brain signal recording and analyses, established one of the first EEG-based BCIs almost 30 years ago. Since, the Graz BCI group contributed in various aspects to the community.
CorTec is a young MedTech company that was founded in Freiburg, Germany, in September 2010. As leading experts for innovations in the field of medical engineering CorTec is following the vision to take implantable neurotechnologies to the next level. In the INTRECOM project, CorTec will develop and provide the implantable hardware that will pick up the brain signals: customized high-resolution ECoG electrodes with high-channel cabling and novel implantable connectors.
