August 1, 2017 – Sapien Labs has entered into a collaboration with the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) to develop cognitive health assessment tools and EEG based metrics in young children. The goal of the collaboration is to enable community cognitive health assessments that are valid across a wide socioeconomic range and can be delivered cost efficiently at scale. The project is led by Dr. Vikram Patel, Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Adjunct Professor and Joint Director of the Centre for Chronic Conditions and Injuries at PHFI in India.
Sapien Labs’ Human Brain Diversity Project is establishing a platform that enableslarge scale collaborative study of EEG activity across diverse populations around the world in order tounderstand the spectrum of dynamical properties of the human brain. By nature, the brain is an experience-dependent organ that is designed to constantly reconfigure itself based on sensory input it receives, integrating every experience into its fabric.
With diverse languages, cultures, social structures, educations, occupations, physical environments, incomes and access and use of technology our experiences vary widely.
March 8, 2017 – Sapien Labs, a not-for-profit developing an open data platform to understand the dynamical properties of the human brain across diverse global populations, announces the launch of The Human Brain Diversity Project in South America, in partnership with the Universidad Nacional de San Martin (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This ambitious research is a first of its kind initiative that has been established to promote deeper understanding of the scope of diversity in the human brain.
