Foreword: This book contains the extended abstracts of the 5th International Congress on Neurotechnology, Electronics and Informatics (NEUROTECHNIX 2017). This year the congress is held in cooperation with Neurotech Network, International Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ICNS) and Sociedade Portuguesa de Neurologia (SPN). NEUROTECHNIX 2017 is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and co-organized by our local hosts, the Universidade da Madeira and The Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (Madeira-ITI). Neurotechnology has seen in the past years tremendous progress. Each year we focus on a topic area: last year the focus was on the understanding and restoring the function of the human hand (“Hand’s on Neurotechnix”), this year the focus moves on to consider the Neurotechnology of thought and cognitive processes – we want Thinking Neurotechnology. We have organized a special Symposium on Cognitive Neural Engineering “Understanding, Decoding and Interfacing with Cognitive Level Processes in the Brain through Neurotechnology” or in short “CogNeuroEng”, chaired by Aldo Faisal and Moritz Grosse-Wentrup. A major aspect of our program is that it reflects the breadth and depth of Neurotechnology, this is supported by our set of four plenary keynote lectures, given by internationally distinguished researchers in the fields of Neurotechnology: Sergi Bermudez i Badia (Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute/Universidade da Madeira, Portugal), Mónica Cameirão (Universidade da Madeira, Portugal), Moritz Grosse-Wentrup (Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Germany) and Eugenio Guglielmelli (Università Campus Bio-Medico, Italy). In addition, the Technical Program includes oral presentations (full papers, short papers and extended abstracts), organized around four simultaneous tracks: Neural Rehabilitation and Neuroprosthetics, Neuroinformatics and Neurocomputing, Neuromodulation and Neural Engineering and Neuroimaging and Neurosensing.
