Today I received some good news by means of a phone call of Wouter Segeth, program officer with STW, the Dutch Technology Foundation. Our ReaSONS project (Realtime Sensing of Neural Signals), a collaboration between Delft University of Technology and Leiden University Medical Center has been approved.
The project aims at the realtime recording of the evoked compound action potential (ECAP) generated by the haircells in the cochlea while fitting a cochlear implant. Also it is considered to be one step towards the creation of realtime online closed-loop neurostimulators.
This is of course good news for Cees-Jeroen, upcoming PhD student in the BME group, who supposedly will start his duties in September this year.
