The Seinäjoki Neuromonitoring Research Group was started in 1990, when Hannu Heikkilä, head of the department of Clinical Neurophysiology started to develop ICU EEG monitoring and sleep analysis. Today, the group is concentrating on:
The Department of Clinical neurophysiology was established in Seinäjoki Central Hospital in 1990. Hannu Heikkilä MD, specialist in clinical neurophysiology, was and still is the first Head of the Department. His research interests are sleep research and ICU monitoring. Dr Heikkilä started the research and development of ICU monitoring technique, an EPSHP/Seinäjoki Central Hospital was the first hospital in Finand to use remote monitoring of ICU EEG.
Kari Mäkelä (PhD) started as the first hospital physicist in the Department of Neurofysiology in 1994. His fields of research are healthcare technology and neurophysiological recordings.
Ville Jäntti MD PhD is Adjunct Professor of Clinical Neurophysiology in University of Tampere and University of Oulu. He has worked in research co-operation with the department from it’s beginning and employed as senior consultant from 2009. He is also Adjunct Professor of neurophysiological technology in Tampere University of Technology. His research interests are neurophysiology of anaesthesia and sedation, electric fields of neurophysiological signals and signal processing of neurophysiologicals signals
Antti Kulkas, PhD Eng, joined the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology in 2010 as hospital physicist. He is currently Chief Physicist of the department and Adjunct Professor at University of Eastern Finland. His research interest are focused in sleep recordings and developing the sleep diagnostics as well as recording and analysis technology of neurophysiological signals.
