Heart beat monitoring – what can we learn?

Heart monitoring is becoming increasingly popular with the availability of health monitoring wristbands. Most of these units have built-in microprocessors that analyze the recorded signals (*1) to determine the heart rate – the frequency of the cardiac cycle (beats per minute). But, besides the heart rate, what can we learn from our heart? The cardiac […]

Disentangling the puzzle of ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by problems in paying attention[1] (the incapacity of attending with a necessary degree of constancy to any object), hyperkinetic activity (remarkable motor activity which appears urgent) and a lack of controlled behavior (unstable mood, fits of rage, tendency to aggressively or excitability) that interferes with […]

Brain, consciousness and complexity.

Various processes in natural sciences, such as the geometric shape of shores, rocks, plants, waves, organism trajectories, atmospheric flows and other phenomena that seem to present a higher level of complexity, may reveal self-similar or self-affine patterns under different resolutions, and although this structure may initially seem complex, it is actually a source of simplicity. […]

Watch your brain at TalkingBrains!

We all think, we all talk, we all communicate and navigate this world but we barely take some time to watch and observe the signals that come out of our own brain. This time, Starlab® and Neuroelectrics® have worked together to develop a brain monitoring and experimental setup within the exhibition of the TalkingBrains, powered […]

The first Brainpolyphony concert

Last December the 10th in Barcelona we were happy to present the first  Brainpolyphony Orchestra Concert. Brainpolyphony is a project born thanks to the collaboration of CRG, University of Barcelona and Starlab with the goal of giving voice, or in this case music, to people with severe communication difficulties. Patients with neurological diseases such as […]

NYC Neuromodulation 2017
