The Biomedical Engineering Group (GIB) is a multidisciplinary research team associated with the University of Valladolid. It is mainly formed by Engineers and Medical Doctors specialized in various areas, such as neumology, neurology, neurophysiology, psychiatry and ophthalmology, that collaborate in different research lines.

The main objectives of this group are:

  • Research and development of methods for the analysis of biomedical signals (EEG, MEG, EMG, oxygen saturation, etc) to help in the diagnosis of different pathologies, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, schizophrenia, epilepsy or sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS).
  • Research and development of eye fundus image analysis techniques to automatically detect characteristic clinical signs of diabetic retinopathy: hard exudates, cotton wool spots, hemorrhages and microaneurysms.
  • Design and development of assistance systems for disabled people or people with speech and language impairments by means of Brain Computer Interface (BCI).
