EEG laboratory to go

There are a multitude of human-machine interfaces where the slightest inattention can have serious consequences. The group "Mobile Neurotechnologies« is working on discreet EEG systems for the analysis of brain activity - e.g. for safe workplace design or for use in health applications.

Mobile Neurotechnologies

The interpretation of signals from the human brain is a challenge. The  group »Mobile Neurotechnologies« of the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg is taking on this challenge in order to make systems for electroencephalography (EEG) available in concrete application scenarios - for example in health applications or at safety-critical workplaces. Insa Wolf's group is particularly working on mobile EEG systems that make the analysis of brain activity suitable for everyday use.

Mobile EEG-Systems for better epilepsy treatment

Exactly recorded biosignals at the time of the seizure in everyday processes help in the classification of epilepsy disorders, in the optimal dosage of drugs - and perhaps in future even in the development of early warning systems. The project »MOND« contributes to research into these approaches.


Better listening at the cocktail party

At a busy party, a healthy hearing can concentrate on a single voice. This ability is also known as the cocktail party effect. Many hearing impaired people have a problem with this because their hearing aids lack information about which speaker to follow.


A mobile system for ADHD therapy - Attention

An attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also frequently occurs in adulthood. The consortium of the BMBF project »ATTENTION« is dedicated to the development of an alternative or complementary ADHD treatment approach that is effective and has few side effects in adult patients.



Digital therapy system for hearing and pronunciation training

The goal of the THERESIAH project is the development of a new digital therapy system for hearing and pronunciation training for severely hearing impaired people. THERESIAH will complement existing therapies, especially for patients with cochlear implants. Various project partners have come together around the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg for this purpose. Therapy with THERESIAH is software-based and focuses on gamification. Users can upgrade to performance levels through high exercise frequency, motivation and feedback systems.
