2006 - Nature-Interview with Frank Ohl
Voyagers in the cortex
In the current issue of Nature (vol. 442, 13.07.06), Frank Ohl, neurophysiologist at the IfN, gives a statement to the issue of further developments in Neuroprosthetics. He emphasizes that only a deeper understanding of the complicated cortical activity patterns will allow the construction of functionally improved prostheses for the cortex.

"It is constantly active, and 96% of that activity is internal - different parts of the cortex exchanging information with each other", he says.

Current approaches at the IfN aim at a combination of animal and human studies together with neurosurgeon Volker Sturm from Cologne.
