Prof. Damien Coyle to deliver lecture at the National Rehabilitation Hospital Research Forum


Attendance at this lecture is now fully booked and no further registrations may be taken

On Friday, June 2nd, a Research Forum will take place from 13.00-14.00 in the Rehabilitation Training Unit at the National Rehabilitation Hospital, Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin. The Rehabilitation Training Unit is located behind the main NRH building. Lunch will be provided prior to the lecture at 12.30pm

The Forum will include a lecture to be delivered by Professor Damien Coyle, Professor of Neurotechnology, School of Computing and Intelligent Systems, Faculty of Computing and Engineering, Magee  Campus, Derry.
Prof. Coyle's lecture will be entitled "Assessing Brain-Computer Interface Technology as an Alternative Communications Channel for the Disabled".
He will describe the development of a  wearable neurotechnology which includes hardware and software that non-invasively measures and translates brainwaves (EEG) into control signals that allow people to communicate and interact with computers without moving.

To register to attend the lecture please contact Dr. Aaisha Khan at aaisha.khan@nrh.ie

Professor Damien Coyle

Damien Coyle is a Professor of Neurotechnology at the School of Computing and Intelligent Systems, Ulster University and is developing neurotechnology to enable movement-free communication for the physically impaired. These developments are underpinned by research in computational intelligence, bio-signal processing, computational neuroscience, neuroimaging and brain-computer interface (BCI) applications.
Previously an Ulster University Distinguished Research Fellow, Damien has won international research awards including the 2008 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award and the 2011 International Neural Network Society (INNS) Young Investigator of the Year Award and was recently shortlisted for the 2015 Annual International BCI Research Awards.
