28.11.18 The Nature published an article on epilepsy research, contributed by scientists at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering

An international team led by Czech scientists has demonstrated that one of the basic natural principles is also involved in emergence of epileptic seizures. Revealing the existence of the so-called critical deceleration principle in the epileptic brain assumes that the seizure is preceded by a gradual loss of stability and resistance of the brain, which becomes more prone to the onset of seizures. The results obtained provide important insights into understanding the mechanisms of seizure formation, opens up space to explain the impact of many other epileptic events, and unify the current - often contradictory - theory of seizure. The results of the research bring new possibilities to explain the causes of loss of brain stability, to develop seizure risk prediction techniques, to adjust treatment depending on the rate of seizure risk, or to increase the effectiveness of healing brain stimulation. Researchers at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Institute of Physiology at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, in cooperation with colleagues from the Institute of Computer Science of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, the Second Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University and colleagues from foreign universities in Melbourne, Oxford and Birmingham have demonstrated on experimental models and real-world patients that detectable changes in brain activity can precede an epileptic seizure.

10.01.19 European Microwave Conference in Central Europe

European Microwave Association (EuMA) is launching a new series of conferences focusing on the development of microwave theory and technology primarily (but not only) in the Central European region. The first of these conferences - EuMCE 2019 - will be held in Prague. More information about EuMCE 2019, local organization, conference fee (it starts at 200 EUR, resp. at 100 EUR in case of students), important dates etc. can be found at webpage www.eumce.com.

23.10.18 Bronze for our students in the Autonomous Racing Competition in Torino

The FEE student group won the 3rd place in the F1 / 10 Autonomous Racing Competition. The third year of this competition took place at the ES Week (Embedded Systems Week) 2018, Torino, Italy. The competition was attended by eight more teams - three teams from the USA, two from South Korea, two from Poland and one from Italy.

04.10.18 The XGLU glucometer by students of Faculty of Electrical Engineering collects further achievements

Two years ago, Marek Novák’s team from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering developed a blood glucose measurement device - an XGLU meter. With this device, graduates of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering have already won a number of competitions, including the prestigious Microsoft Imagine Cup. In September, the XGLU won the IoT Future Hub contest organized by Vodafone, and in early October, Ing. Marek Novák ranked second in the Czech Inventor survey.
