DEMOVE Symposium

Translational Engineering in Neurorehabilitation 2013
(TEN 2013)

From Motor Control Physiology to Mechatronic

October 22th to 23th, 2013 in Göttingen

The DEMOVE Project

In this project, which is an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC), we propose the development of advanced electrode systems for in-vivo electrophysiological recordings from nerves and muscles in humans and new computational methods/models for extracting functionally significant information on human movement from these recordings. The highly innovative focus is that of providing the link between the cellular mechanisms and the behavior of the whole motor system in the intact human, i.e. to build the bridge between the neural and functional understanding of movement. On the basis of these new technologies, we aim at answering open questions in movement neuroscience and using novel principles for man-machine interaction. Specific applications in man-machine interaction are related to neurorehabilitation technologies, such as functional electrical stimulation, myoelectric and peripheral neural prostheses.
