13 November 2019 Dr. Imran Khan Niazi from Centre for Chiropractic Research, New Zealand.

As part of his research visit, Dr. Imran Khan Niazi gave the following seminar: "Brain-Computer Interface based on Movement-Related Cortical Potentials for Stroke Rehabilitation"

A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that interprets brain signals generated by the user, allowing specific commands from the brain to be sent to an external device. Such interface enables severely disabled people to interact with their environment without the need for any activation of their normal pathways involved in motor commands. The combination of rehabilitation paradigms and BCIs, both of which exploit cortical plasticity, could help people become “able” once again. For this reason, BCI systems appear promising rehabilitation tools. This presentation will provide some insight into the inter professional collaboration for development of a BCI system that can be used for stroke rehabilitation when it is based on neuromodulation techniques using Hebbian plasticity and movement-related cortical potentials (MRCP).

Imran Khan Niazi received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical engineering (specialization: Biomedical Engineering) from the Riphah International University, Islamabad, Pakistan, in 2005, and his Masters in biomedical engineering from University & FH Luebeck, Luebeck, Germany in 2009 and later he got his PhD from Center of sensory-motor interaction, Health Science Technology Department, University of Aalborg, Aalborg, Denmark in 2012 under supervision of Prof Dario Farina. After working as a postdoc for a year, he moved to New Zealand in 2013, where he is currently working as Senior Research Fellow at New Zealand College of Chiropractic. Dr Niazi research interests focus on rehabilitation engineering with the patient-centred approach. For that, he is interested in studying and understanding the altered mechanism of motor control and learning in neurological disorder. Understanding these mechanisms can assist us in developing various technologies that can enhance the quality of life (QOL) of these patients, during and after my PhD he has been utilising brain-computer interfaces to achieve goals above. He has authored 50 peer-reviewed journal papers and 86 conference papers (proceedings and extended abstracts including). His work has been cited ~ 1200 times, and he has an h-index of 16 according to Google Scholar.

H2020 ERA-Chair of Cognitive Electronics (COEL) Team Visitors

Welcome to Adrien Russo, guest PhD student from Université Côte d'Azur.

Adrien will spend three months at T.J. Seebeck Department of Electronics to work on distribution of artificial neural networks in wireless sensors with applications to energy-efficient smart cities. In this context, his PhD supervisors Francois Verdier and Benoit Miramond also visited our department to discuss the scientific and technical challenges of the research project.

On 21-26 October 2018, Peter Koch from Aalborg University (Denmark) visited us in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.

As part of his visit, he gave:

  • One PhD seminar: “Energy-Aware Scheduling of FIR Filter Structures Using a Timed Automata Model”,
  • Two MSc lectures: “An Introduction to the Design of RTL Architectures for DSP Algorithms” and “Considerations on Power      Consumption and Power Reduction in CMOS based Circuits”
  • One presentation: “An Introduction to Problem Based Learning Conducted at Aalborg University”

In addition, we had discussions on potential collaborations in terms of project and joint funding applications.
