The race is well and truly in full swing: should universities be encouraging collaborative projects between Biochemistry, Neurology, and Psychological Sciences?
If yes, could Neurofeedback be utilised to facilitate an improvement in emotional regulation, a precursor to the egocentric 'empire building' behaviours, which for so long have acted as a hindrance to the undertaking of much good, as well as important, research?
Or, if no, which areas of science do you believe would benefit from this approach and what is the potential impact from any possible collaborations?
"Whether its our location, contact lists, calendars, photo albums, or search requests, app developers, advertising companies, and other tech firms are scrambling to learn everything they can about us in order to sell us things. Data from smartphone apps, aggregated by third-party companies, can indeed paint an eerily accurate picture of us, and data miners are increasingly able to predict how we will behave tomorrow..."
#neuroethics debate: The debate is definitely in full swing. From the faux pas committed by Facebook CEO, Zimmerman with regards to his friends and FB users lack of care over what happens with their personal data, to Google and Defense contractors/companies, it seems the Pandora's box which is data collection, what type of data and where the data originates, has been opened for good. There is no doubt that BCI equipment will lead to some of the greatest innovations of this technology age and possibly within the fields of Neural Science and treatments of brain disorders, diseases and rehabilitation from injury. However, there are a much larger ethical questions which must be addressed alonside these developments which may affect the human condition in a highly evolutionary disruptive manner, if not answered. This article attempts to address some of the legal issues currently in existence and thier potential impact upon society.
Italian-born neuroscientist Ruggero Scorcioni has developed a new technology that will help you get stuff done by deflecting phone calls or other notifications away when you're busy.
A great development in the area of BCI. This may go some way to support objectives of the #quantifiedself and data collection devices. With this development however, arises the question: can big business be trusted to use this technology in an ethcal manner? #neuroethics
With the charitable events 'Mind Games for Charity' promoting innovative research in Psychological Sciences, fast approaching, it is only fitting that we now take this opportunity to reach out and ...
In collaboration with DMC labs at the Psychological Sciences Department, Birkbeck University, we are hosting a number of events over the next six weeks showcasing current research in the field. We will be showcasing BCI and Neurogaming: can neurogaming be used with phenomenology to improve focus and concentration, and bring about a change in temperament?
It is hoped the events will be a catalyst to some very interesting conversations as we know much has already been happening as a result of the development of these games.
