Marie Curie Ambassador at the Professional High School “Di Marzio – Michetti”, Pescara (Italy)

Partner: BIND-UdA || 19th April 2016

On 19 April 2016 Prof. Comani visited the Professional High School “Di Marzio – Michetti” in Pescara (Italy), and presented the ANDREA Project to a group of about 150 students (16-18 years old). Prof. Comani started with a presentation of the goals of a IAPP project, and of the importance of international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral research to boost scientific cooperation in Europe. She then presented the ANDREA project, its specific goals, how it is implemented, and the potential medical and social impact of the use of dry electrodes for electroencephalographic monitoring in adults. Prof. Comani also presented the preliminary results obtained so far during the ongoing validation of the first system prototype in athletes, showing images of the actual acquisitions performed at the BIND Center. The general impression was that the students were interested in these novel technologies and that they understood the potential impact of the new device for the treatment of neurological patients and for other basic science applications such as in sport science.
