Neurolab Program

The Neurolab Program provides researchers in Africa, Asia and Latin America with equipment, tutorials and tools to quickly add human EEG to their research. Researchers can be operating in any adjacent field such as medicine, sociology or public health and no prior neuroscience expertise is required.

The human brain is at the center of the success or failure of our collective future.

How will we, as diverse human beings, adapt to and find our individual places in this rapidly changing world? From the growing increase in mental health disorders, cognitive stunting arising from impoverished environments, and declines with aging to how our brains are able to interact with technology and prepare for the jobs of the future, we face immense challenges.
How will we understand ourselves and manage them?

Our understanding is incomplete, and skewed towards the west

Most studies are conducted on small samples of college students, a context relevant to less than 10% of the global population. Recent work shows stark differences in brain dynamics that are dependent on life context and can be up to 1000-fold different across global populations suggesting that results obtained from small western study samples may not translate to other cultures and contexts.

It is imperative that human neuroscience is more uniformly represented across the globe

Sapien Labs is committed to enabling underrepresented regions to quickly and cost efficiently build human neuroscience research programs and contribute to a large scale global view of the human brain.

Nadia Justel
University of San Martin

Dr. Nadia Justel is at the University of San Martin in Buenos Aires, Argentina and holds a Ph.D. in psychology. Her lab studies various aspects of emotion, particularly the effects of emotion on memory and differences in emotional memory in musicians and non- musicians. The addition of EEG brings a new dimension to her work, allowing her to connect aspects of brain activity to the outcomes of her psychology studies.
