Neuroverse Joins Marvel's Avengers

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."

Neuroverse technology presented at The New York Academy of Sciences

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.

Neuroverse founders contribute to important reflections on brain-machine interface implications at 2013 AAAS

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.
