"Developing tools to help people with disabilities is the most exciting part of our work"
Michela Chiappalone is a scientist at the Italian Institute of Technology and coordinator of the EU-funded FET research initiative Brainbow, a project targeting the development of innovative neuroprostheses. In this video she shares thoughts on her research, work environment and on the challenge of combining her investigation activity with family life.
Stefano Buccelli, PhD student at the Italian Institute of Technology, describes the goals of Brainbow, the EU-funded FET research project he is involved in: the development of a new class of neuroprostheses for the treatment of damaged brain tissues.

The Brain Bow project focuses on the development of innovative neuroprostheses. The main goal is to restore neuronal connections and activity among in-vitro neurons by connecting them to an artificial system. This technique may be used in the future to treat the consequences of damages to the brain tissues caused by accidents or strokes.
