How Device Mak­ers Can Take Health­care “Beyond the Pill” (Med­ical Device and Diag­nos­tic Industry):

One thing is clear: Pharma’s com­mit­ment to “beyond the pill” has never been so apparent.

Each and every pharma com­pany seems to have formed a divi­sion or a strate­gic team to explore new ser­vices around patient com­pli­ance, pop­u­la­tion health data and fur­ther­ing con­nec­tiv­ity for improv­ing patient man­age­ment… Read the rest of this entry »

More and more stud­ies are show­ing the poten­tial ben­e­fits of mind­ful­ness prac­tices for stu­dents –to improve phys­i­cal health, psy­cho­log­i­cal well-being, social skills, even aca­d­e­mic per­for­mance in some cases– as well as for teach­ers and admin­is­tra­tors –pri­mar­ily to reduce stress and burnout–.

To give you an update on the land­scape of sci­en­tific research about the role of mind­ful­ness in edu­ca­tion, here goes our selec­tion of ten recent stud­ies, all of them recent ran­dom­ized con­trolled tri­als, with brief descrip­tions of each Read the rest of this entry »

10 Ways To Improve Health & Well-being Based On Latest Non-Invasive Neurotechnologies

2014SummerDavos_WEF

Last month I had the for­tune to join over 1,900 pio­neers from 90 coun­tries at the World Eco­nomic Forum’s Annual Meet­ing in Tian­jin, China, to dis­cuss how inno­va­tion can improve the state of the world.

Through­out hun­dreds of pan­els, work­shops, pri­vate meet­ings and social gath­er­ings, we exam­ined how to deal with cli­mate change, how to invest in pub­lic infra­struc­ture, how to bet­ter reg­u­late finan­cial ser­vices, and dozens of other press­ing top­ics. In address­ing these issues, every­one — inde­pen­dent of nation­al­ity or dis­ci­pline – brought to the table our most pre­cious asset: the amaz­ing Human Brain.

Dur­ing stim­u­lat­ing and cap­ti­vat­ing ses­sions we explored Read the rest of this entry »
