One of the best science videos of the year!
2nd prize at the "Fast Forward Science 2015" Competition
The movie "Light gets on your nerves" was financed and coordinated by the Max Planck Society and pictures the research of the Brain-Computer-Interfaces group at our institute.
Scientists are able to evaluate the brain activity of a human via EEG signals. But which signals belong to which thought processes? Bernhard Schölkopf and his team want to decrypt this code and develop powerful brain-computer interfaces. Even completely paralyzed patients should thus be able to communicate with the outside world again.
