tES vs. TMS: pros and cons of the two techniques

tms-vs-tes

At Neuroelectrics, we believe in the advantages and effectiveness of transcranial electric stimulation (tES) in treating numerous brain diseases. Yet, despite the increasing number of tES publications per year, the lion’s share in the market of non-invasive brain stimulation technologies is still played by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), likely because TMS received US-FDA approval in […]

EEG/tES closed Loop stimulation

Starstim-32

Recently, loop systems that combine neural monitoring and tES are receiving huge interest in the non-invasive brain stimulation field. Traditionally tES has been applied in a rigid fashion in which the electrode position and stimulation intensity were pre-defined before the stimulation session and applied in the same manner across subjects. This procedure ignores for example […]

Hybrid brain models: towards personalized models

What if doctors had a virtual version of their patients with their respective pathologies? They could test any possible treatment and know if it is going to work before even applying it. Personalization has become a standard practice in medical diagnosis and treatment since subject variability has a clear impact on the effectiveness of the […]

AI meets Human Consciousness – Is there Machine Consciousness?

A moment of “AI meets Human Consciousness – Is there Machine Consciousness?”.

Last December, the Luminous[1] project organized a networking session at the ICT 2018 Exhibition, a central event of R&D activities in the EU. The networking session aimed to open an interdisciplinary discussion on consciousness. Specifically, Prof. Joanna Bryson (Artificial Intelligence expert, Dept. of Computer Science, University of Bath), Prof. Antonio Chella (Machine Consciousness expert, Dept. of […]

Eureka!: what is really going on in the brain?

Eureka! Moment

When Archimedes, one of the greatest scientists and mathematicians of Ancient Greece, was tasked with determining whether his king’s crown was made of pure gold, he was stumped. He decided to ponder this task over a warm bath, as one does. After entering the water and noticing how it rose based on the volume of […]

EEG up in the air again- ISAE-SUPAERO

There is growing interest for implementing tools to monitor cognitive performance in naturalistic and everyday work environments. An emerging field of research, known as Neuroergonomics, promotes the use of wearable and portable brain monitoring sensors to investigate cortical activity in a variety of human tasks out of the laboratory. Recent technological progress has allowed the […]

tCS clinical trial: treatment for depressive symptoms?

It is widely known that exercise is good for the brain and body. We even have a blog post on how to keep your brain fit. But does exercise as an adult have that big of an impact on your brain? How about exercise as a child? Some researchers were curious what the early effects […]

A promising ADHD biomarker – Enobio

EEG can be used to investigate abnormal brain activity in neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer or Authism. EEG biomarkers are capable of detecting atypical neural patterns that can be used to distinguish between patient groups and a healthy population. EEG biomarkers have thus the potential of helping clinical professionals in the diagnosis of a […]

EEG for Optimizing Communication Processes

Audiences seem to forget 90% of business content after 48 hours and the little they remember is usually random information, not the information that you as the presenter want them to remember (Ebbinghaus, 1885). If you have ever found yourself in this situation and if you regularly generate and distribute business content, then this blog […]
