Event description

Description

This tour is at South Kensington campus, Imperial College London. You will be visiting two labs: Human Robotics Group & Brain and Behaviour Lab.

The Human Robotics Group (HRG), led by Prof Etienne Burdet, uses an integrative approach of neuroscience and robotics to investigate human sensorimotor control, and to design efficient assistive devices and training systems for neuro-rehabilitation, which are tested in clinical trials. This approach has generated promising projects and significant results in various areas from computational neuroscience to medical robotics, neural engineering and tissue engineering. The HRG is part of the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, which is leading the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally.

The Brain & Behaviour Lab (B&BL), led by Dr Aldo Faisal, fuses neuroscience with technology contributing to the emerging discipline of neurotechnology. It combines methods from computing, physics and engineering with experimental human studies to understand how the brain works. Faisal Lab pursues both basic science and translational work by reverse-engineering the algorithms that drive brains and behaviour and by translating this understanding into technology that helps patients and people.
