The fifth issue of the CSIC Investiga magazine delves into the keys and functioning of the most complex biological structure: the human brain. It shows the basic research of the CSIC that tries to unravel mechanisms such as neurogenesis, or
A project to follow our research on neural interfaces has been awarded to the GAB in the latest national call Generation of Knowledge of the State Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation. In particular, the MANIAC project that
The Ministry of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, chaired the XI meeting of the Council for Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy, in which the update of the Map of Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures, the ICTS Map for 2021-2024, was approved.
– A technology-based company for the development of graphene-based applications for neurological diseases, and founded by researchers from IMB-CNM-CSIC, ICN2 and ICREA, who lead some of the research areas of the Graphene Flagship. – The agreement paves the way for
A study published in Nature Nanotechnology shows that flexible brain probes made of graphene micro-transistors can be used to record pathological brain signals associated with epilepsy with excellent fidelity and high spatial resolution. This research was led by the Institute of
We are placed at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM, CSIC) and we also belong to the CIBER-BBN. The group takes advantage of the technological capacities available at the Clean Room of the IMB-CNM in order to provide novel solutions to different biomedical applications. These solutions are mainly based on sensing solutions at different levels of biological organization, i.e. mollecules, cells and organs. As a consequence, the group works jointly with different biomedical research groups, from the theoretical analysis to the final clinical trials.
