Robert Bilder: We are embarking on the next stage of human evolution

Robert Bilder

Robert Bilder, PhD

What is your cur­rent job title and orga­ni­za­tion, and what excites you the most about work­ing there?
I’m the Ten­nen­baum Fam­ily Pro­fes­sor of Cre­ativ­ity Research at UCLA’s Semel Insti­tute for Neu­ro­science & Human Behav­ior. The Semel Insti­tute and UCLA over­all are amaz­ing places to be involved in highly col­lab­o­ra­tive trans-disciplinary research.

Please tell us about your inter­est in applied brain sci­ence. What areas are you most inter­ested in? What moti­vated you to pur­sue work in your field?
I’m a clin­i­cal neuro-psychologist inter­ested in under­stand­ing how we can deploy new neu­ro­science knowl­edge to change our brains. I believe we are embark­ing on the next stage of human evo­lu­tion! Read the rest of this entry »

Brain fitness meets HRV and EEG biometrics and neuroinformatics

As an active par­tic­i­pant in the Open­ViBE project (a soft­ware plat­form to design, test and use Brain-Computer Inter­faces), in sci­en­tific as well as tech­ni­cal capac­i­ties, I have long been focused on ways to process, ana­lyze and put brain sig­nals to prac­ti­cal use. When I started read­ing on the sub­ject of brain fit­ness a few years ago, I rec­og­nized the poten­tial to enhance a vari­ety of brain train­ing approaches, from med­i­ta­tion to cog­ni­tive train­ing, by deploy­ing Read the rest of this entry »
