Hardware for real-time EEG and other bioelectrical signals (WP2, WP3, WP5)

Neuroeconomics combines classical economics and neuroscience to deepen our understanding about the role played by human brain in economic decision-making. The main objective is to produce new hardware to collect the EEG and other electrical signals such as the EMG, ECG, and EOG. The ESR will focus on: (1) design and comfort from a user-centric perspective; (2) reducing size and power requirements; (3) increased signal quality and (4) improved wireless transmission. The ESR will also learn about working with standards, guidelines, and other framework conditions. ESR10 will be an engineer with a strong background in biomedical signal engineering and neuroscience.

Planned secondments: AAU (SD, M12-M14): eye-tracking systems and signals and applications for neuro-business; UPISA (EP, M18-M21): Biomedical systems and signals and applications for advertising; JKU (HP, M25-M27): Principles in electronic engineering.

Matilde Dirodi


I am Matilde Dirodi and I was born in Italy in 1993. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Automation Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy in 2016 and my master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, Italy in 2018. While doing my master’s I spent 4 months in Boston where I worked on my thesis at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The project was about non-invasive localization of High-Frequency Oscillations (HFOs) in medically refractory epilepsy patients using simultaneous EEG and MEG recordings.

At the moment, I am working as a PhD fellow under the supervision of Günter Edlinger at g.tec, Austria. My research interests include neuroscience, biomedical signal processing and hardware parts development.




“Hardware for real-time EEG and other bioelectrical signals (WP2, WP3, WP5)”


  • Creation of new electrodes, caps, mountings, and amplifiers to collect the EEG and other biosignals
  • Testing and revision of these devices
  • Evaluation of these devices in real-world settings in tandem with other imaging tools
