Labex S3PM

Participants : Bruno Arnaldi [contact] , Valérie Gouranton [contact] , Guillaume Claude.

S3PM is a 3-year project (2013-2016) funded by Labex CominLabs. It involves 3 academic research teams: Medicis (LTSI/Inserm), S4 and Hybrid (IRISA/Inria). S3PM aims at providing specific models, tools and software to create a collaborative virtual environment dedicated to neurosurgery processes using observations of real processes.

HEMISFER is a 3-year project (2013-2016) funded by Labex CominLabs. It involves 4 Inria/IRISA teams (Hybrid, Visages (lead), Panama, Athena) and 2 medical centers: the Rennes Psychiatric Hospital (CHGR) and the Reeducation Department of Rennes Hospital (CHU Pontchaillou). The goal of HEMISFER is to make full use of neurofeedback paradigm in the context of rehabilitation and psychiatric disorders. The major breakthrough will come from the use of a coupling model associating functional and metabolic information from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to Electro-encephalography (EEG) to “enhance” the neurofeedback protocol. Clinical applications concern motor, neurological and psychiatric disorders (stroke, attention-deficit disorder, treatment-resistant mood disorders, etc).


Participants : Anatole Lécuyer [contact] , Jussi Lindgren.

SABRE is a 3-year project (2014-2017) funded by Labex CominLabs. It involves 1 Inria/IRISA team (Hybrid) and 2 groups from TELECOM BREST engineering school. The goal of SABRE is to improve computational functionnalities and power of current real-time EEG processing pipelines. The project will investigate innovative EEG solution methods empowered and speeded-up by ad-hoc, transistor-level, implementations of their key algorithmic operations. A completely new family of fully-hardware-integrated, new computational EEG imaging methods will be developed that are expected to speed up the imaging process of an EEG device of several orders of magnitude in real case scenarios.

CNPAO Project

Participants : Valérie Gouranton [contact] , Jean-Baptiste Barreau, Quentin Petit.

CNPAO ("Conservatoire Numérique du Patrimoine Archéologique de l'Ouest") is an on-going research project partially funded by the Université Européenne de Bretagne (UEB). It involves IRISA/Hybrid and CReAAH. The main objectives are: (i) a sustainable and centralized archiving of 2D/3D data produced by the archaeological community, (ii) a free access to metadata, (iii) a secure access to data for the different actors involved in scientific projects, and (iv) the support and advice for these actors in the 3D data production and exploration through the latest digital technologies, modeling tools and virtual reality systems.

IRT b<>com

Participants : Bruno Arnaldi [contact] , Valérie Gouranton, Maud Marchal.

b<>com is a French Institute of Research and Technology (IRT). The main goal of this IRT is to fasten the development and marketing of tools, products and services in the field of digital technologies. Our team collaborate with b<>com within two 3-year projects: ImData (on "Immersive Interaction") and GestChir (on "Augmented Healthcare").
