[Barcelona] The BrainCom Project was exhibited in two events during the 2021 Biennal Ciutat i Ciencia in Barcelona, Spain.
On 10 June, BrainCom project coordinator and ICREA Professor Jose Antonio Garrido (ICN2) discussed how new technology is being developed in Spain, and how materials such as the graphene, may change the evolution of neurological diseases detection and treatment.
The discussion is available (in Catalan) on YouTube:
Participants trying out the BrainCom Virtual Reality Experience at the 2021 Biennal Ciutat i Ciencia in Barcelona, Spain
On 13 June, a segment of the BrainCom virtual reality (VR) experience was debuted! Attendees were able to step into an ICN2 lab and learn about the brain-computer interfaces with which we work.
Once the full experience is complete, it will allow participants to immerse themselves into the BrainCom project through three interactive experiences.
First, participants will learn how communication works in the brain, what happens when there are issues, and how the BrainCom technology can be used to solve them.
Then, the participants will be able to tour three of our research centers, learning:
(1) How the BrainCom probes are made (ICN2)
(2) How the BrainCom electronics are made and connect with the probes (CSIC), and
(3) How we can use the electronics and probes to decode speech (UGA).
And in the final part, participants will get to explore the complexity and ethical implications of this cutting-edge research through a series of interactive multiple-choice questions.
