Summary of the work programme

This support project assists the experimental researchers with standardised characterisation of their electrical stimulation devices. This allows, for instance, more reproducible measurements and a more reliable validation of theoretical and numerical models. In addition, the project provides support for the coordination, design and construction of the various electrodes as well as in the procurement of electrodes and entire implant systems for the animal experiments. In addition, smaller technical tasks and manufacturing steps are carried out. In particular, a knowledge database for stimulation chambers is also being built.
