Professor Ulli Schall is leading the Alert Project diagnosis confirmation and EEG implementation.
From deciphering communication between dolphins, to isolating the mechanisms of schizophrenia, Professor Ulrich (Ulli) Schall investigates cerebral activity to better understand the riddles of the brain.
The introduction of the electroencephalogram (EEG) in 1924 allowed scientists to amplify and record electrical reactions of the brain to external stimuli, without intrusion or risk, for the first time.
Soon after came the development of the event related potential (ERP), allowing for the establishment of parameters for normal brain function using EEG data averages.
It is in this area of cognitive neuroscience research - understanding the relationship between clinical and cognitive signs and symptoms of neuropsychiatric disorders with structural and functional brain imaging measures - that Ulli is expert.
