W.D Armstrong Studentship: Earables - designing and optimising housings for neural interfaces

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 9 May, 2021

The Royal Society has identified neural interfaces as a key transformative technology for the near future. Wearable technologies for sensing signals such as EEG, eye movements and sensory evoked neural responses are going to be a fundamental part of that. The ears are the natural structures on which to house these, as the pinna provides support, it is close to the brain, and is oriented in-line with the eyes to measure the corneo-retinal electrical dipole directly for eye movements, and can also measure sound-induced neural activity.
