Flexible and User-defined Technologies for Unconstrained neural Recording Experiments in Non-Human Primates

Project description

Wireless technology to facilitate brain studies in non-human primates

Non-human primates (NHPs) constitute a very good model for studying brain physiology since they share remarkable anatomical, cognitive and behavioural similarities with humans. The key objective of the EU-funded FUTURE-NHP project is to develop a 3D printed cranial device for studying the brain in freely moving NHPs. Researchers will employ wireless technologies and video behavioural monitoring alongside a software platform that will allow end users to customise the device for specific applications. The implementation of this device will help associate neuroscientific questions with specific behaviours, at the same time supporting ethically acceptable NHP fundamental research.
