The University of Houston neuroscience programs include the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience program in the Department of Psychology and various centers including Center for Neuro-Engineering & Cognitive Science and the Center for Neuromotor, Biomechanics Research (CNBR). and the Brain-Machine Interface Systems Lab.

qEEG in freely behaving people

Principal Investigator: Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, University of Houston
Title: Assaying neural individuality and variation in freely behaving people based on qEEG
BRAIN Category: Individuality and Variation

The goals of this research are to uncover neural signals associated with the passive and interactive perception/production of art and to assess the long-term stability of neural activity acquired via quantitative electroencephalography (or qEEG).

Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, PhD – Houston

Professor, Department of Electrical & Computing Engineering, University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering
Principal Investigator, Brain-Machine Interface Systems

Dr. Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal's vision is to innovate neural, prosthetic and rehabilitation engineering by developing non-invasive intuitive bi-directional brain-machine interface systems that harness user's intent from scalp EEG. We are also uncovering exciting applications in the arts and STEM training in K-12 education, as well as reverse engineering the brain while achieving reverse-translational benefits of co-robots.

Professor teams up with local artist to study aesthetic experiences in the brain.

Visitors to Dario's Robleto’s conceptual art exhibit were given the option of wearing an EEG skullcap to record their brain activity while they observe Robleto’s artwork. The team of researchers from the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering were led by Jose “Pepe” Luis Contreras-Vidal, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen University Professor of electrical and computer engineering.
