Ongoing research projects

The project contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), and develops solutions that accelerate the transition to sustainable cities.

Project manager at MDU: Baran Cürüklü

Main financing: Vinnova

The purpose of the project is to, in close collaboration with the department of rehabilitation medicine at Danderyd Hospital, implement ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) mediated NeuroFeedback (NF) rehabilitation for stroke patients to study 1) the mechanisms of neuroplasticity that enable improved motor recovery and 2) the impact of severity of motor dysfunction on a) neuroplasticity, and b) on the hand grasping motor outcome of the NF rehabilitation.

The objective of RECOG is to develop new technology for innovative brain-training for people with cognitive deficits. The ability to focus our attention on relevant information, maintain and manipulate this information during a short period of time (our Working Memory, WM), is central for human cognition.
