IEEE Brain Talks

Q&A with Gerwin Schalk, PhD – Are the Opportunities ECoG Holds for Neuroscience Worth the Cost?

Q&A with Gerwin SchalkGerwin Schalk, Ph.D., Deputy Director of the National Center of Adaptive Neurotechnologies, was an early adopter of electrocorticography (ECoG) for the study of brain function and neurological disorder therapies. He will be a keynote speaker at NeuroCAS, a collaborative workshop to explore the challenges of neurotechnology held 21-22 October in Cleveland, Ohio, directly following BioCAS 2018. IEEE Brain recently spoke with him about the opportunities ECoG presents for both research and clinical applications.
