Researchers monitor the brain with deep electrodes in patients suffering from epilepsy
Study the neuroscience of virtual reality through deep brain electrodes in patients.
This is a “unique” research project in the world, carried out by the Immersive Neurotechnologies Laboratory of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), led by Professor Mariano Alcañiz; and the Functional Neurosurgery team at the La Fe hospital in Valencia, under the direction of neurosurgeon Antonio Gutiérrez.
The brain is still a “great mystery” for science, the last frontier of knowledge. For this reason, both institutions have joined forces to carry out research that will allow “answers to multiple unknowns about the functioning of the human brain.”
