Potential partner looking for a project

Main topic(s) of interest : Graphene (Applied Research and Innovation)

Brief description of expertise :

Our group (http://rfcas.eps.uam.es) has a vast expertise in the analysis, design and manufacturing of passive devices and antennas from the microwave to the terahertz regime. To that effect, we are in continuous development of in-house software with tailored numerical and analytical methods in applied electromagnetics, which can easily incorporate graphene features into a fast and reliable design of the aforementioned devices and antennas. Likewise, we are experts in the use of commercial software tools in this field.

Therefore, we would be interested in taking a part in a project related to the following Graphene Applied Research and Innovation JTC area: 4. GRM-based, Ultra-Broadband THz-Transceiver technologies for 6G compliant wireless communication.

Keywords : Terahertz, filters, couplers, power dividers, polarizers, passive devices, antennas, applied electromagnetics

Main topic(s) of interest : HBP (Basic and Applied Research)

Brief description of expertise :

We are a team working on brain-inspired modelling of decision making by humans involving perceptual and reinforcement learning. During our project entitled "Modelling of voluntary saccadic eye movement during decision making" we have developed a spike timing model in NEST simulator including all parts of brain visual information processing system starting with eyes' photoreceptors up to basal ganglia biasing and dopamine-dependent plasticity.
Our model allows also simulation of damages in every of its parts thus allowing for in silico investigation of brain lesions effects on decision process in the brain. It could be useful also in simulation investigations of brain diseases caused by neuro-modulatory effects.
We are looking for a project related to this call subjects:
1. Tackling Psychiatric Diseases
2. Accelerating the diagnosis and the development of therapeutic approaches for rare diseases affecting the nervous system
The papers presenting results from our project can be found here: https://www.research

Keywords : reinforcement learning, dopamine plasticity, spike timing model, NEST simulator
