Neurosteer received the “Brain Health Company of the Year” award from Tradex News. It has been a great year for us, most notably in improving our product for early screening of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and frontotemporal dementia. Looking forward to 2020 with FDA clearance, early marketing, and extended clinical trials.
Following recent fMRI studies on the effect of music on the brain, Israeli TV Channel 13 interviewed Neta Maimon, a PhD student in music cognition at Tel Aviv University and a researcher at Neurosteer. Using Neurosteer sensing technology on a group of brain-monitored study participants, emotional and cognitive responses to songs were clearly visible.
Neurosteer monitored two runners, in real time, during the NYC marathon on Nov 3rd. Prof. Steven Laureys, a key figure in the European Human Brain Project, was behind this initiative, which created significant interest in sports and other brain monitoring in extreme physical conditions. The article in DeMorgen describes it (in Dutch; use Google Translate). The full event was streamed live on Facebook. When going over the recording, one can see that Steven was meditating during much of the run (a well-known method to reduce oxygen consumption).
Neurosteer, together with Stanford Prof. Carla Pugh, is quantifying and assessing surgeon performance before and during surgery as part of the Stanford Surgical Metrics project. During the American College of Surgeons conference in San Fransisco, brain activity data from more than 200 surgeons was collected. Check out the video to see the cognitive assessment and monitoring during simulated surgery. This illustrates an application of Neurosteer’s platform for the evaluation of cognitive performance of healthy subjects. The same setup can be used to monitor pilots and others during critical missions.
Neurosteer’s Nathan Intrator will discuss mobile brain sensing in clinical trials at the Neurotech conference at Stanford on February 26-27, 2018. Other speakers include DARPA’s Justin Sanchez; Kernel’s Bryan Johnson; Verily’s Brian Otis; Openwater’s Mary Lou Jepsen; and Khosla Ventures’ Vinod Khosla
