Neuromagnetic recording system: magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a clinical testing device indispensable for presurgical evaluation of epilepsy surgery. MEG is useful to evaluate epileptic foci and motor, sensory and language functions with higher spatiotemporal resolution compared to electroencephalography (EEG). However, presently its analyses are not only time-consuming but also considerable experience.
Brain-machine interfaces (BMI) enable disabled people to manipulate assistive communication devices and robotic arms as they intend by decoding brain activities using artificial intelligence (AI). BMIs are promising technologies that restore functions disturbed by various neurological diseases. We have established a BMI system that enables disabled people to manipulate assistive communication devices and robotic arms by decoding intracranical EEGs. Now we are developing an fully-implantable wireless EEG device aiming at final clinical application of the implantable BMI system.
Our mission is research and development of recording, modulation and restoration of brain functions.
Our main missions are as follows,
1）Research and development of recording and analysis methods of MEG
･Automatic detection of epileptic activities by AI
2）Research and development of implantable wireless BMIs
･Development of implantable wireless BMIs and its clinical trial to obtain medical approval
･Development of specific technologies for advanced implantable BMIs
3) Research and development of neural informatics, modulation and restoration related to 1) and 2).
