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.
