Online conference Neural Interfaces and Artificial Senses (NIAS)

Since 1958 when the first pacemaker was implanted in humans, bioelectronics devices have been increasingly used to interface with different types of tissue, monitor and interact with biological activity. During our continuous endeavors to better study sophisticated neuronal systems we have become more capable of diagnosing and treating various disorders. We are currently emerging in an era where bioelectronic devices are becoming smaller, less invasive and safer, which in turn is being paralleled with new therapies for a vast range of neurological and auto-immune diseases. This opens exciting possibilities for the future, from cutting-edge technology for brain-machine-interfaces with unprecedented functionality, artificial organs and augmented senses that can change the way we perceive the world, to a more human way of interactions with robots.

Topics to be covered by the conference: • Bioelectronic devices • Electroceuticals/Bioelectronic medicine • Neuronal interfaces and implantable electronics • Materials at the interface with biology • Neuronal mechanisms and clinical applications • Artificial visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory and tactile sensory systems.

Item on chip manufacturing on national television

On the 1st of September, Sten Vollebregt explained in the program NTR Atlas on national television in the Else Kooi Laboratory how chips are made and why it is difficult to produce many of them on short notice to resolve the current chip shortage.

Online conference Neural Interfaces and Artificial Senses (NIAS)

Dr. Tiago Costa is co- organizing (together with colleague Georgios Spyropolous from Gent University ) an online conference called "Neural Interfaces and Artificial Senses" (NIAS), for which the registration is now open. It will take place online from Sept 22nd to Sept. 24th, and is featuring a great list of invited academic speakers, spanning the fields of neuroscience, biophysics, materials and microelectronics, and also featuring the VP of implants at Neuralink and a patient with a Vagus nerve stimulator. Abstract submissions are also open for both Oral and Poster presentations.
