ERC-Project Feel Your Reach is completed

In recent years, the team at the Institute of Neural Engineering has succeeded for the first time in controlling a robotic arm purely by thought in real time, in the non-invasive way using an EEG cap. Congratulations!


Biomedical Engineering @ Ö1

The Ö1 live program Radiodoktor was dedicated to the 50th anniversary of biomedical engineering in Graz. Gernot Müller-Putz and Christian Baumgartner were on the phone and outlined their research areas. You can listen to the broadcast (in german) here.


Complete Success: "Robotik-Forschungswochen"

Children were able to demonstrate their programming skills in the robotics lab during the summer months. The feedback from the children, who do not spend the whole day experimenting but are also supervised by "Kinderbüro" staff during the breaks, is very good.
