Sponsored Project as Principal investigator

 1.Erasmus+ International grant for the proposal titled “Integrated Track in Brain and Cognitive Sciences (iBRAIN)” under the Capacity Building in Higher Education scheme (2020-2024)
The total grant amount sanctioned is EUR 967160.00 (762 Lakhs INR), Prof. Veeky Baths, Associate Professor at the Dept. of Biological Sciences and Principal Investigator at the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab is one of the PIs.

The primary purpose of this project is the modernisation of the curriculum in cognitive studies by developing new and innovative courses and methodologies in the partner countries. The project also aims to update existing courses in cognitive neurosciences, psycholinguistics, neuropsychology and related areas.

This consortium of international universities and institutes was proposed through a collective proposal between several researchers. The project was conceptualised by Prof. Boris Gutkin (Ecole Normal Superior, France) in collaboration with Prof. Veeky Baths (BITS, Pilani Goa Campus, India) Prof. Ramesh Mishra (UoH, India), Prof. Yury Shtyrov (Aarhus University, Denmark), Prof. Andriy Myachykov (Northumbria University, UK), Prof. Vasily Klucharev (National Research University, Higher School of Economics, Russia) and Prof. Raul Gainetdinov (Saint Petersburg State University, Russia). This project aims to develop an educational track from Master level to Doctoral level of education in Cognitive Sciences, which will combine Psychology, Neurobiology, Mathematics and Computer Sciences.

2.Collaborative Literacy and Cognition Project, Funded by Max Planck literacy project,      Nijmegen, The Netherlands The cost of the project € 5800. 
3.Cognitive Neuroscience Techniques and multimodal scheme to understand consumer behaviour funded by Course5 Intelligence Private Limited, 2022-2025 for Rs.1,227,600 INR
4. Mobile/Web and AR-VR Based Cognition Tracking, Analysis and Rehabilitation for healthy and cognitively impaired people Funded by BITS BioCyTiH Foundation, for Rs. 2,400,000 INR
5.  Builder project on Brain Computer Interface DBT (2021-2025) 
 1. Brain Computer Interface Project funded by Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India sponsored research project, titled “Home automation and smart wheel chair based on Electroencephalography (EEG) signals produced in brain
  A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is of great benefit to the differently abled, as it allows those with restricted freedom of movement to perform various actions which enable them to live an uncompromised, independent life. Such BCIs are possible by capturing and analysing electroencephalography (EEG) based potential responses to various stimuli. BCIs can be used for a host of activities, including cursor control, with spellers, to control wheelchairs and for home automation and control of various devices. A novel BCI-based home automation system and smart wheel chair that works with two responses - Steady State Visually Evoked Potential (SSVEP) and the eye-blink artifact is proposed. These two responses together facilitate a robust and efficient system that can serve the largest section of society to varying degrees. This system can be used without having to train the user in advance and is free from the fatigue and long delays usually associated with P300 or GUI-based systems.
