Flow 50 Phase 1 Partners
On Oct. 22nd, we announced (tl:dw) the upcoming availability of our first 50 Kernel Flow devices at the beginning of 2021. The response and enthusiasm far exceeded our expectations.
Since, we have committed nearly half —23 Flow systems— to elite academic and industry groups whose research ideas are diverse, ambitious, and extraordinarily exciting. Today we are sharing a few of these first partners.
Dr. Boas’ group will use Kernel Flow to investigate normal and altered brain activity during movement, perception, and social interaction, focusing on neurorehabilitation and the effects of attentional modulation.
Prof. Maria Angela Franceschini
Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital
Dr. Franceschini’s group will use Kernel Flow to study sport-related concussion (i.e. mTBI), cannabis intoxication, cerebrovascular dysfunction in aging, and cognition and nutrition in older adults with obesity.
Ranya Habash, MD
Bascom Palmer Eye Institute
The Bascom Palmer Eye Institute (the #1 eye hospital and vision research center in the US) will use Kernel Flow to study cortical effects of glaucoma, pain, stroke, and the impact of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and MS on cognition and vision.
Prof. Alexander Huth
University of Texas at Austin
Dr. Huth’s group will use Kernel Flow to map and decode brain activity into computational representations of natural language and touch perception.
Dr. Nicco Reggente
Institute for Advanced Consciousness Studies
Dr. Reggente’s group will use Kernel Flow to create a personalized meditation assistant in virtual reality, with support from Tiny Blue Dot Foundation.
Prof. Keith St Lawrence & Prof. Mamadou Diop
Lawson Health Research Institute, Western University
The Western University team will use Kernel Flow to study the accuracy of coma prognosis, detect onset of focal cerebral ischemia during cardiac surgery, and optimize depth sensitivity for the detection of brain activation.
Prof. Giulio Tononi
Wisconsin Institute for Sleep and Consciousness, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Tononi’s group will use Kernel Flow to study lucid dreaming and meditation and to develop novel neurofeedback tools, including for deep meditative states, with support from Tiny Blue Dot Foundation.
