Discover the activity of your nervous system
As you read this text your brain is generating signals and patterns. It is translating everything your senses see, hear, feel, and smell, storing the information in your memory, and generating emotional responses.
Moving your thumb to scroll past this on your phone will generate different signals, as will adjusting your position in your chair or on your feet. Everything you do, feel, and experience makes billions of neurons in your brain fire off thousands of signals every second.
Our exhibit will showcase our work on expanding our understanding these neural signals and patterns and translating them into information that can be understood by artificial devices. What does this mean? Ever wanted to control a robot with your mind? That’s what it means.
If you can, learn about the basics and conduct experiments before visiting our virtual neural pattern lab. Then we can have an informed discussion among colleagues.
We look forward to seeing you back here soon to find out more about our Royal Society Summer Science Exhibit. You can also find out more about our research in the Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neural Engineering Research Group in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.
