Project description

The Brain Star Project has to major objectives: The first objective is to develop a microsystem technologies and a platform for wireless miniaturized brain stimulation and recording Suitable for small animal research and treatment of human neurological and neurodegenerative diseases in a longer run. The second ovbjective is to validate the technologies developed in three different application contexts (basic neuroscience / neurobiology, medical therapies, and pharmacological R & D) and providence feedback to the technology developers / These are ambitious goals requiring a strong multi-disciplinary consortium and an interdisciplinary approach Closely or working together
