Neurotechnology is a rapidly growing field of research, thriving to repair,
replace or 

support physical functions affected by nervous system diseases by technical
means.

At the Bernstein Focus for Neurotechnology (BFNT) we exploit electrical and 
chemical signals recorded in the brain to control external or implanted
devices. 

The BFNT efforts are organized in projects on fundamental neurotechnological
research, 
the development of new techniques, clinical testing and neuroethical
considerations.

 

PhD-Positions are available in the following projects:

 

.          Voluntary control of
