The brain-driven computer assistance system for people with limited mobility focuses on the design, development, testing and deployment of noninvasive brain-computer interface system based on electroencephalography (EEG) methods. It s aim is to provide communication and control pathways to individuals with severe motor disabilities.
A car simulator (Škoda Octavia), operated in neuroinformatics laboratory, is used in experiments examining the driver’s attention during monotonous and dangerous traffic situations. Experiments are based on the method of event related potentials and measurement of peripheral biological signals.
The research group runs neuroinformatics laboratory, in which experimental data in electroencephalography and event related potential domain are measured, processed, stored and shared. The laboratory is equipped with a recording device BrainAmp produced by the BrainProducts company, car simulator and an electrically and acoustically shielded chamber. The laboratory infrastructure is gradually extended to ensure a full implementation cycle from performing electrophysiological experiments to their final interpretation.
One layer of mouse retina lacks in a certain population of mice due to genetic disorders; mice cannot see. The use of blind mice in some types of experiments is troublesome, and therefore it would be appropriate to reliably diagnose whether a mouse sees or not. Currently, this can be determined reliably only by analyzing microscopic preparation of the eye (after killing the mouse). The aim of the project is the analysis of evoked responses (VEP, respectively. SSVEP) and determination whether the mouse sees or not.
Development coordination disorder in children – diagnosis, relationship to brain function Developmental coordination disorder is one of the specific learning disabilities. It is described as the impaired development of coordination, which cannot be explained by overall intellectual retardation or specific acquired nervous disorder. The project deals with the structure of disorder and examines the possibility of using the method of evoked potentials to investigate it.
