Neuromonitoring utilizes electrical activity of neuronal and myogenic structures for diagnosis and the control of initiated therapeutic measures. The methods include electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG) and evoked potentials (EP).
The focus of the working group Neuromonitoring is on the equipment technology and methodology required for acquisition, conditioning and transmission of bioelectric potentials. This also includes vital parameters that can be influenced by neuronal structures (e. g. temperature, blood pressure, respiration, eye movements, skin conductance etc.). Research is being carried out in the fields of sensor technology, signal processing, data transmission and signal analysis. Another approach is the integration of suitable stimulators for closed-loop systems. This enables the development of networks made up of different self-sustaining distributed actuators and sensors.
