Open doors at Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany

Partner: TUIL || 23th April 2016

This activity took place on April 23rd 2016 and it was carried out in the framework of the “open doors” of the Ilmenau University of Technology. Live demonstration on electroencephalography and online brain activity reconstruction were performed using single dry electrodes and cap prototypes of the ANDREA project. Differences and advantages of the new electrode system were discussed and compared to conventional wet cap systems. Impacts on current research as well as future fields of application were highlighted in relation to other ongoing projects at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMTI).   The presentations included guided lab tours and live demonstrations for approx. 30 groups of about 10 persons each. Furthermore, the ANDREA project was covered as an example research project in two general talks on research and education at the BMTI (45 min, audience 200 people each).   The audience included future students, current students, parents and employees of the university. The dry electrode prototypes and the performed live demonstrations provided a realistic impression of EEG and neurosciences in general.
