(Advisor: Professor Frank Guenther) Panko Abstract
Dr. Frank Guenther was the guest speaker at the Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Science on Screen program, which presents feature films and documentaries paired with science and technology experts. Dr. Guenther spoke about locked-In syndrome before a screening of Julian Schnabel’s 2007 film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, based... More
Sean Lorenz was awarded the CELEST/CompNet prize in Neural Technology at this year's BU Science and Engineering Symposium for his poster entitled: "Adaptive tablet design for a mobile EEG brain-computer interface"
Members of the neural prosthesis lab participated in a video lecture series, Science for the Public, describing our many speech neural prosthesis projects. http://forum-network.org/lecture/cracking-neural-code-speech
The Neural Prosthesis Lab is featured in this week's episode of Science Nation, “Mind Reading Computer System May Help People With Locked-in Syndrome.” The episode features our latest non-invasive brain-machine interfacing research. http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/science_nation/brainmachine.jsp
Lab co-director Jon Brumberg was awarded an NIH/NIDCD R03: "Investigating output modality for a brain-computer interface for communication." The goal of the project is to enable BCI control of a 2D formant synthesizer for continuous, instantaneous audio-visual output. The project will help determine the importance of audio vs. visual feedback... More
Co-directors Jon Brumberg and Frank Guenther along with collaborator Philip Kennedy are one of 10 finalists out of 64 submissions for the 2011 BCI Award for their project: "An auditory output brain-computer interface for speech communication." This year's winner will be announced at the 5th International Brain-Computer Interface Conference 2011.
Lab member Emily Stephen was just awarded a Kirschstein F31 NRSA from the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication disorders to study the EEG responses to initiation of speech and motor planning, production and covert production relative to rest. This study will initially examine these responses in subjects with no... More
