Neurobiologist Professor Anton Sirota and His Colleagues at LMU Makes Strides in Language Disorders 

A new international project called BrainCom, funded by the EU, will establish and apply the brain interface technology aimed to record the activity from the cortical language network in the brain in unprecedented detail, with a view to developing innovative computer-based interfaces to help aphasic patients.Neurobiologist Professor Anton Sirota and his colleagues at LMU will make a vital contribution to the project by establishing the link between such detailed brain signals and coding elements emerging from the cortical neural circuitry, such as the one involved in the encoding of natural language in the brain. These data will provide vital input for the development of computer-based systems that can convert patterned nerve impulses into spoken words or written messages...
