Research aim

Research in the Health Science and Medical Engineering Laboratory utilizes noninvasive brain imaging and biomedical measurement techniques to develop novel applications for medicine and rehabilitation. The photograph shown demonstrates the experimental setting of our electroencephalogram (EEG)-based brain-machine interface (BMI), a “mind-operated” robotic hand to help people with physical disabilities. Electrodes attached onto the subject's scalp detect very small potential responses regarding his/her change of attention, which is transformed into an operational command that moves the robotic hand. In collaboration with medical doctors and mechanical engineering researchers, our research aims at developing a fast and accurate BMI system feasible for clinical use. Our laboratory also focuses on biosignal processing for quantitative evaluation of stress, emotion, and memory, utilizing the noninvasive biomedical measurement tools of near-infrared spectroscopy, EEG, magnetoencephalogram, electrocardiogram, electromyogram, and electronic pupillometer.
