Connected locally and internationally

e-Lab Links to the world

The e-Lab is part of the Neurology Department at Bern University Hospital and is connected with other research institutions in Switzerland and abroad. The e-Lab collaborates with the Wyss Center for neuroengineering and UCSF  including in clinical trials.

Wyss Center for bio- and neuroengineering

Neurocenter – Bern University Hospital

The e-Lab is part of the neurocenter, headed by Professor Claudio Bassetti. The neurocenter is the largest comprehensive academic center for neurological and psychiatric disorders including teaching programs in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, and psychiatry and a dedicated emergency center. The e-Lab benefits from the dynamic medical environment and is physically situated only 50 meters away from where medical action takes place. Translation is catalyzed by the neuro-clinical trial unit that helps organize trials of novel diagnostic or therapeutic interventions in our patient population.

Wyss Center for bio- and neuroengineering

Wyss Center for neuroengineering

The Wyss Center is headed by Professor John Donoghue and is an independent, non-profit organization that provides the expertise, facilities and resources to transform creative neuroscience research into clinical solutions that will improve the lives of people with nervous system disorders.
Maxime Baud is Staff Neurologist at the Wyss Center to develop a sub-scalp chronic EEG and test it in the hospital. The Center also supports the e-Lab research projects on seizure forecasting



The Bern Network in Epilepsy Sleep and Consciousness (BENESCO) consists of 22 interdisciplinary research groups from the fields of Neurology, Pneumology, Psychiatry, Psychology and Sports Science specialized in sleep medicine, epilepsy and research on altered states of consciousness. All group leaders are researchers and/or clinicians with an international profile.



The Tidis lab hosts the e-Lab for all rodent neuroscience experiements. With Antoine Adamantidis’ expertise in optogenetics we are able to rapidly go from the bedside to the bench and test clinical hypothesis on the mechanisms of epilepsy in freely-moving animals by targeting specific cell populations.


Center for Sleep-Wake-Epilepsy at University Hospital Bern

The e-Lab collaborates with the clinical center for Sleep, Wake and Epilepsy to analyze direct brain recordings obtained clinically in patietns. With Kaspar Schindler expertise in time-series analysis, we apply advanced statistics to better understand EEG signals.



The e-Lab collaborates with Vikram Rao, MD, PhD from the UCSF Neurology Department for work on seizure forecasting using chronic EEG.
