Neuroverse collaborates with Dr. Justin Feinstein from the Laureate Brain Research Institute and with Sunday Night 7 news to investigate brain patterns during float clinics and surfing, and its implications for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Therapy. These are the type of insights that can be made possible with a brain interface for everyday life! Read More
Neuroverse collaborates with Dr. Justin Feinstein, Director of the Float Clinic and Research Center at the Laureate Brain Research Institute, to study brain function during sensory deprivation floating and the exciting potential applications for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and general anxiety. The unique capabilities of our brain interface allow for real time neural recordings during the floats, as well as advanced analysis of these brain patterns, and we couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Dr. Feinstein on this incredible and innovative mental health program!

Another example of a basic universal decoder is on display through January 4, 2015, at New York City’s Discovery Times Square, where Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibition gives fans the ability to experience an interactive head-up display similar to Iron Man’s. A three-electrode wireless EEG sensor activates the display when a visitor presses his or her forehead against it. The sensor also helps users navigate the display to watch video clips, play games and see their brain waves in real time, although eye-tracking sensors and software also assist with the navigation. The system was built with redundancy to ensure that it worked reliably for the large crowds visiting the exhibit... Read More
Neuroverse congratulates our close collaborator and advisor Dr. Gregory Light on being awarded the prestigious Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Prize for Innovative and Promising Schizophrenia Research by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.
Dr. Light has been a pioneer in translational research, focused on establishing reliable neurophysiological brain markers of neuropsychiatric disorders and novel ways to structure them into diagnostic and therapeutic solutions. We are extremely proud of our collaborative partnership with Dr. Light, integrating Neuroverse's technology into this research and its applications.

We're standing in an almost too narrow space; tall black walls on one side, bright white with wood and aluminum framing on the other. The ground is snaked with cables and in the distance I hear the Hulk roar. Fighting back rising claustrophobic panic, I ease my way further in to find the magic behind the Avengers, or at least the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N exhibit... Read More

There are comic book nerds, and there are science nerds — and there are those so smart across all boards, even Stan Lee is baffled. That spot of academic excellence is reserved for the geniuses who put together the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network), an interactive experience at... Read More

The job of creating superheroes has become more complicated in the 50-plus years since Marvel Comics first assembled the Avengers to fight evil. Audiences today still crave fantastical adventures but at the same time demand a greater degree of plausibility. In response Marvel gathered a real-life team of scientists to ensure that its Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Exhibition currently on display in New York City’s Times Square... Read More

Today S.H.I.E.L.D. hosted a science training and technical orientation session hidden in plain sight as the Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Superhero Science Analysis panel. Kicking off with an ominous, "Doors secured," the panel was a solid hour of the highest intensity technical geekiery. Arriving under the masquerade of... Read More

Neuroverse is partnering with Victory Hill Exhibitions in the new Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. to assist in the development of scientific content and in the integration of its novel brain assessment technology in an interactive display. "We are thrilled to collaborate in this unique endeavor, as it delves into science and technology “hot topics” within the framework of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers. The S.T.A.T.I.O.N. enables a broad educational outreach for STEM while providing fantastic entertainment" said Dr. Ricardo Gil-da-Costa, who created the neurosciences content and led this partnership. "It has been an amazing experience to work alongside creative partners, such as NASA, to develop this singular environment. We believe that the integrated content and Neuroverse’s novel technology in brain-machine-interfaces will excite everyone, significantly contributing to better public understanding, while creating a fun one-of-a-kind experience."

Dr. Gregory Light, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego and Associate Director of the Clinical Neuroscience Unit, presented at The New York Academy of Sciences recent results from a partnership between Neuroverse and UC San Diego on the use of our brain assessment technology to detect modulations of an important biomarker of neuropsychiatric disorders. His talk was featured in the symposium "Translational Neuroscience in Psychiatry: Light at the End of the Tunnel", stressing the importance of translational solutions for mental pathologies. "For biomarkers to take off, we need to get out of specialty laboratories and into real-world clinical settings" said Dr. Light. "Neuroverse groundbreaking technology is bringing a much needed, personalized and mobile brain-approach to mental health."
Neuroverse continues to partner with leading researchers and clinicians working in a variety of pathologies to develop translational advances for mental health.
Dr. Todd Coleman was an invited speaker in the "Advances in Brain-Machine Interfaces: Applications and Implications" symposium at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He presented exciting developments in the use of his previous work in flexible electronics within the integrative framework developed by Drs. Coleman and Gil-da-Costa for translational applications in brain-machine interfaces. The gathered feedback was extremely encouraging as Neuroverse continues to convert its vision into reality.
