Wireless connection to the human brain
This project is motivated by humanity's curiosity to know itself, its desire to understand how the brain works, and the need to help patients with neurological and psychiatric diseases. The team develops technology that offers powerful new ways to study the brain, improving both diagnosis and therapy.
Multilocus transcranial magnetic stimulation (mTMS) will enable computerized brain stimulation in which algorithms, based on continuous monitoring of the state of the brain, control the course of the stimulation.
Our project will open new possibilities for telemedicine to reduce dependency on specialized human resources in diagnostics and therapy. Currently, we are in the process of commercializing our technology.
Playing with the music of the brain
Common neurological disorders like depression and chronic pain can be challenging to treat with conventional methods. An automated version of a long-used brain stimulation technique holds real promise as a reliable and effective drug-free alternative.
Researchers at Aalto develop a new technology to let immobilized patients control devices with their brain
A new project at Aalto University is developing techniques that will enable immobilized patients to control devices using their brain activity. The project builds on the multi-locus transcranial magnetic stimulation (mTMS) technology developed at Aalto, adapting it into a brain–computer interface (BCI) that can help patients with neurological conditions.
