Starlab Neuroscience has been awarded a grant under the H2020 SME instrument to develop a business around our EEG biomarker technologies. Initially we will focus on Parkinson's disease building on previous work with the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Starlab Neuroscience traveled to SfN 2014 in Washington DC along with the Neuroelrctrics team. Lots of focus on tDCS this year: 20 posters and 2 nano-symposia featuring tDCS in the title from a similar number of labs.
Starlab assisted the European Space Solutions Conference held in Prague between June 11th and 13th. The event was packed with fascinating talks about the technological advances provided by Galileo/Egnos (navigation) and Copernicus (earth observation) and their derived solutions.
Mental Health Cluster of Catalonia, Starlab and Neuroelectrics were present at the Mobile World Congress 2014 with a great impact. The event was held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona. Institutions, health centers and other member companies of the association have presented draft new technologies for mental health.
Neuroelectrics joined forces with MarsCrew134 Analogue Astronaut Expedition at the Mars Desert Research Station
MarsCrew134 Analogue Astronauts entered the Mars Society Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) January 18 for a two week, total immersion science mission. Joining the seven person human crew was the Aldebaran NAO humanoid “astronaut companion” robot and the introduction of Neuroelectrics’s Enobio electroencephalography (EEG) brain monitoring device into the psychological projects during the analogue “Mars” mission.
On November 16th Starlab and Gfg2 sponsored a TEDxBarcelona event featuring a world class group of speakers.
The theme was "Bottom up" with a special focus on Global Navigation Satellites Systems and Earth Observation.
15 teams competed over 2 days at Google Campus Tel Aviv to build the most compelling app starting from EEG using a wireless device. Starlab and Neuroelectrics provided support and our own wireless EEG device, Enobio, to the hackers and we were delighted to present the winners with their very own 8-channel Enobio for a learning enhancement platform based on the users real-time learning capacity. Some very talented developers and a great event organised by the IBT! http://brainihack.org/ http://israelbrain.org/
Starlab Neuroscience has been awarded a research grant by The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to apply its expertise in advanced Machine Learning techniques and EEG signal processing in the search for a biomarker of Parkinson's disease. Starlab is already collaborating in this field with Prof. Alvaro Pascual-Leone (Harvard Medical School) and Prof. Jacques Montplaisir (Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal). The grant runs for 12 months with results to be presented in early 2014.
