About us

Our team has a dream: to reinvent the way we observe and treat the human brain. Neuroelectrics has created diagnostic and treatment telemedicine wireless platforms based on Starstim and Enobio, combining multichannel transcranial current stimulation such as tDCS with EEG. We aim to help patients recover their brain health in pathologies such as chronic pain and stroke rehabilitation. You can find us in our offices in Boston (MA-US) and Barcelona (Spain).

Giulio Ruffini

President

Dr. Giulio Ruffini obtained a BA in math and physics from Berkeley and a PhD in theoretical physics from UC Davis/LANL in 1995. In 2000 he and others founded Starlab to transform science into technologies with impact. He has provided the science and technology visions for Neuroelectrics, and believes that neuromodulation will make great advances thanks to the union of precision multifocal stimulation technologies with advanced biophysical and neuro-computational models, EEG and fMRI. His recent paper on brain-to-brain communication was the 9th most shared paper of 2014.
