Valkee science and research: Valkee placebo controlled, randomized and double-blinded clinical studies, amongst others | Biological Signal Processing | Scoop.it
“The human brain, per se, is sensitive to light”

This hypothesis was the starting point of Valkee science and research, in joint cooperation with researcher groups of University of Oulu, Finland, in 2007.

Bright light is a generally accepted and effective treatment for a variety of mood swings and especially for winter depression. However, the mechanisms of the effects of light are not entirely known.

The Valkee studies, all placebo-controlled since mid-2012, focus on the responses and applications of transcranial bright light (TBL).

New Interfaces for Musical Expression

New Interfaces for Musical Expression | Biological Signal Processing | Scoop.it
Colbert Sesanker's insight:

"The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression gathers researchers and musicians from all over the world to share their knowledge and late-breaking work on new musical interface design. The conference started out as a workshop at the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) in 2001. Since then, an annual series of international conferences have been held around the world, hosted by research groups dedicated to interface design, human-computer interaction, and computer music."

PLOS Biology: Neuroscience, Ethics, and National Security: The State of the Art

PLOS Biology: Neuroscience, Ethics, and National Security: The State of the Art | Biological Signal Processing | Scoop.it

"To pursue cognitive neuroscience research, the Pentagon's science agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), received about US$240 million for the fiscal year of 2011, while the Army trails at US$55 million, the Navy at US$34 million, and the Air Force at US$24 million [3]."

Colbert Sesanker's insight:

"According to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, soldiers are required to accept medical interventions that make them fit for duty. Experimental treatments are a harder case, but the US government has shown a tendency to defer to commanders in a combat situation if they think some treatment is likely to do more harm than good, even if unproven."

 

Wow, "required to accept medical interventions"...
