As direc­tor of the Infan­cy Stud­ies Lab­o­ra­to­ry at the Rut­gers Cen­ter for Mol­e­c­u­lar and Behav­ioral Neu­ro­science,  Dr. April Bena­sich’s research focus­es on brain devel­op­ment in infan­cy and ear­ly child­hood, specif­i­cal­ly the neur­al process­es nec­es­sary for nor­mal lan­guage and cog­ni­tive devel­op­ment. She uses a mix of cut­ting-edge tech­nolo­gies, includ­ing mea­sure­ment of audi­to­ry evoked brain poten­tials (EEG/ERPs) and nat­u­ral­ly sleep­ing MRI/fMRI, that add con­verg­ing non­in­va­sive phys­i­o­log­i­cal mea­sures to her lab’s exten­sive behav­ioral bat­tery.

Dr. Olivi­er Oul­li­er, just appoint­ed as the new Pres­i­dent of EMOTIV, is a neu­ro­sci­en­tist, strate­gist, and con­trib­u­tor to For­tune Mag­a­zine, He is the for­mer Head of Strat­e­gy in Glob­al Health and Health­care and Mem­ber of the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee of the World Eco­nom­ic Forum, where he was in charge of an inter­na­tion­al project on val­ue-based care involv­ing more than 50 glob­al com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions. Olivi­er is a Full Pro­fes­sor of Behav­ioral and Brain Sci­ences at Aix-Mar­seille Uni­ver­si­ty and taught at the Uni­ver­si­ties of Oxford and Geneva’s exec­u­tive edu­ca­tion pro­grams.
