Scientific summary

Blaise Yvert is senior researcher leading the team Neurotechnology and Network Dynamics at BrainTech Laboratory Inserm/Univ Grenoble Alpes U1205. He received his Engineering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon and Cornell University in 1993, his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Insa Lyon in 1996, and his habilitation (HDR) in 2008. In his early carrier, BY started to work on human brain imaging of auditory areas using EEG, MEG and intracranial EEG (SEEG). From 2003, he then coordinated and participated to several collaborative projects to develop novel high-density multielectrode array systems to study the dynamics of neural networks at a multicellular level. In 2012- 2013 he became appointed Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the Brown Institute for Brain Sciences (directed by John P. Donoghue) in the field of human brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). Since 2013, his research interests focus on the development of new cortical interfaces and BCIs systems to restore speech from the decoding of brain signals.
