Johan Wessberg

Prof. Johan Wessberg, MD PhD, obtained the medical diploma in 1987. His thesis in 1995 concerned human hand motor control and proprioception. He did a postdoc in the group of Prof. Miguel Nicolelis, Duke University, USA, pioneering work on brain-machine interfaces in monkeys. His current lab combines the technique of human microneurography, where the activity of single, identified nerve fibres is recorded in the peripheral nerves, with brain imaging using EEG, MEG and fMRI. He also maintains a strong interest in applying Machine Learning and other methods for the analysis of brain and peripheral nerve signals.
