The creation of this consortium and the work it has undertaken have culminated in the development of innovative industrial prototypes. OpenViBE2 has made it easier to prepare for the future of 'brain-computer interface' technology and its applications in the French and international video game market. This large-scale French project has opened the door for numerous and future technological developments and economic opportunities.
Careers at Inria - Interview
Stanley Durrleman recently received the Gilles Kahn award for his PhD carried out at the University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis. Having had his PhD jointly supervised by the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Cachan, as part of the ASCLEPIOS project-team, he is currently conducting post-doctoral research at the University of Utah in the US. We take a look back at a scientific career in applied mathematics, which began with no preference for a specific field. He then moved into medical imaging.

OpenViBE2 (2009-2013) is a collaborative research project supported by ANR funding and which is looking into the potential of so-called "brain-computer interfaces" (BCI) in the field of video games.
The purpose of the ATHENA project-team, created in July 2010, is to explore the central nervous system (CNS, brain and spinal cord) using computational imaging and the support of two major categories of methods: diffusion MRI (dMRI) and magneto-electroencephalography (MEEG). This team is led by Rachid Deriche.
The NeuroMathComp project team led by Olivier Faugeras is using complex mathematical tools to better understand how the brain works. Paul Bressloff, mathematics professor at the University of Utah and international chair at Inria, is also participating in the project.
The Second International Conference on Mathematical NeuroScience (ICMNS) will be held at the Congress Center in Juan-les-Pins, on the French Riviera.
The goal of this event is to provide an interdisciplinary conference to bring together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians interested in using and extending mathematical concepts and methods for solving problems in neuroscience. In turn, we expect that the connections and insights gleaned through mathematics can pose future questions to experimental neuroscience.

Fabien Lotte is a researcher at Inria’s Bordeaux centre. He works on brain-computer interfaces by modelling the learning processes. He has just been awarded an ERC Starting Grant, which will allow him to open up this still recent field of research to the human factor, an aspect that has been largely overlooked by the specialists and that could help improve the use of interfaces.
Brain and emotions
The 19th edition of the "Semaine du cerveau" will take place from 13 to 19 March 2017 throughout France.
The theme proposed by the "Université Côte d'Azur" this year will be "Brain and Emotions".
You can find here more information on this event as of January.
Of Polish origin, and having lived in Canada, the United States and the Netherlands, Maciej Krupa is a mathematician specialising in the field of mathematics applied to the neurosciences. He joined Inria in 2012, on one of the very first "Advanced Research Positions" contracts within the Mycenae team. Now member of the MathNeuro team-project, he looks back on his experience at the institute.
Since 2015, Inria and Mensia Technologies have been working within the Inria Innovation Lab CertiViBE, whose objective is to facilitate the development of medical devices based on OpenViBE, Inria's flagship software used as a daily support for research, and to promote transfer possibilities in the medical field.
