Large-scale, 4-year Brain Computer Interface project funded!
It is with great joy that I can finally announce (after an extended grant review process) that our project to create a Brain Computer Interface system for the holistic treatment of neurological disorders has been funded! The project is entitled 'Next-Generation Brain-Computer-Brain Platform – A Holistic Solution for the Restoration & Enhancement of Brain Functions (NOURISH)', and will incorporate emotive music and Virtual Reality (and more!) into a powerful, unified BCI system. It's a huge endeavour (I'm one of over a dozen Principal Investigators), and the grant will provide 4 years of funding to several labs around Singapore to work on this exciting project. My role is to head the Emotion Mediation aspects, which we will drive through a bespoke music generation system. The lead mastermind behind this project is Prof Cuntai Guan (NTU). Here's to a great 4 years of research!
