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 […]

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 […]

Where Art meets Science: A collaboration with La Fura Dels Baus

There is a long history of art and science looking for each other. As Leonardo da Vinci said: “to develop a complete mind, study the science of art, study the art of science. Learn how to see.
