EEG and Space

EEG researchers are opening new frontiers for exploring the human brain beyond the Earth. EEG research on humans in space travel is becoming a key field in order to improve pilots and astronauts training and well-being. Through Neuroelectrics’ mother company Starlab we have strong links to the Space industry and the European Space Agency and […]

European Applied Neuroscience Projects

As I have mentioned some times in previous posts, I am pretty sure that in the next years we will see great advances in the field of neuroscience. The 20th century was the century of physics, with great discoveries such as the theory of relativity and quantum physics, among others. I reckon the 21st century […]

Neurofeedback: A Tool to Enhance Sports Performance

During the last decade the use of Neurofeedback techniques to achieve a better athletic performance has been a booming subject. More and more athletes use mental training each day as a means of achieving the ultimate competitive edge.
