Neurocareers: Doing The Impossible!

Jul 22, 2023

Ever wondered how we can optimize Brain-Computer Interfaces using muscle responses and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of the brain? Join us on the latest episode of the BCI Award Neurocareers podcast series, where we unravel the mysteries of this groundbreaking project: "A multimodal Brain-Computer Interface approach using muscle responses to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation of the brain."

In this electrifying episode, we're thrilled to welcome Colin Simon, a trailblazing researcher from Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. Colin and his team submitted their awe-inspiring project for the BCI Award 2022 and were among the top 12 finalists.

But that's not all! Colin will also take us on an exhilarating ride through his own career journey, offering invaluable insights and tips for aspiring neurotechnologists. From working with EEG and Virtual Reality to his groundbreaking clinical trial involving Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) neurofeedback with stroke patients, Colin's expertise spans a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques and technologies. And it gets even better! Colin shares with you his strategies of making a successful BCI Award submission!

Join us for an inspiring conversation as we explore the future of brain-computer interfaces, delve into the world of body ownership, and unlock the limitless possibilities of neuroscience and neurotechnology. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the brightest minds in the field! Tune in and get ready to be amazed by the wonders of the human brain with Colin Simon!

This episode is part of a partnership between Milena Korostenskaja, PhD at the Institute of Neuroapproaches, and Christoph Guger, PhD at g.tec biomedical engineering. We showcase the innovative projects of BCI Award winners and nominees and to guide future applicants.
