Belén Guerra-Carrillo to speak about Cognition, Learning and How to Conduct a 200,000-participant Study at the 2017 SharpBrains Virtual Summit

Proud to confirm a new excellent Speaker @ 2017 SharpBrains Virtual Summit (December 5-7th).

Belén Guerra-Carrillo is an NSF fellow and a doctoral student at UC Berkeley in Prof. Silvia Bunge’s Building Blocks of Cognition Lab. She is particularly interested in the neural and cognitive mechanisms that give rise to changes that occur as a result of learning, and uses multiple methodologies–eye-tracking, neuroimaging, big data and more– to gain a richer picture of how and when these changes take place, as well as the factors that may influence individual learning trajectories, as evidenced by the fascinating recent study published just two weeks ago and outlined below.

UC Berkeley study links cognitive longevity to higher education (The Daily Californian):

“A study led by campus researchers found that higher levels of education are linked to later ages of peak cognitive performance…The team was able to use anonymous data gathered from almost 200,000 subscribers to Lumosity, an online cognitive training program, whose users consented that their results could be used for scientific research. Lumosity became involved in the study through its Human Cognition Project, which aims to provide researchers with cognitive data from Lumosity’s training tools Read the rest of this entry »

Two Alvaros leading brain health @ BrainFutures 2017

— Álvaro Fernández Ibáñez (left) and Álvaro Pascual-Leone (right), speaking yesterday at BrainFutures 2017

Keynoting a fantastic conference, Álvaro Pascual-Leone presented an overview of Neuromodulation and Neurostimulation, and Álvaro Fernández Ibáñez discussed the future of Brain Health and Enhancement building on the slidedeck below.

Exciting times!

Hundreds of science labs and companies around the globe are researching and developing new ways to help brain owners be smarter, sharper and healthier. What explains this flurry of activity, and where may it be headed? Which companies, technologies and solutions are gaining the most traction so far, and what are some of the best practices for appropriate use?
