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.
To generate ideas that change the world, that is the aim of Imagine Silicon Valley, a creativity program that takes place once a year to bring 12 people to Silicon Valley (California, USA) to work on 4 disruptive projects related to neuroscience, education, women empowerment and smart cities. This year, Starlab will participate in the program as the supporting partner of one of the projects.
Starlab and Neuroelectrics recently sponsored a workshop on Optimizing Brain Performance Using Noninvasive Brain Stimulation. It featured a world class panel moderated by Elsa Punset.
Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Roi Cohen Kodash, Michael Nitsche and Adam Gazzaley provided a fascinating tour of their research to a full house at Casa Macaya in Barcelona.
On May 17th Starlab and HC2 sponsored a TEDxBarcelona event featuring a world class group of speakers.
The theme was "The future of Technology and Society" with a special focus on human-computer confluence.
Music Hack Day is a hacking session in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music + software + mobile + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it's music related. The 4th Barcelona Music Hack Day will be organized as an event of the Sónar+D within the Sónar 2013 festival. Neuroscience and Music (Special Call) Get the chance to develop a new application interfacing music with the brain at the Barcelona Music Hack Day 2013!! We are looking for a new connection between neuroscience and music.
