The Barcelonabeta Brain Research Center is hosting a pioneering new study that aims to elucidate the processes of brain function in healthy individuals at risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The project is utilizing the modern technology of neurofeedback which allows participants to see the activity of their brain in real time and learn to control it. The study holds promise for the future prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and is going to be the first large scale study of neurofeedback processes, investigating for possible associations with biomarkers and other biological data.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 707730. The grant is bringing Stavros Skouras a promising international cognitive neuroscientist to work in close collaboration with the scientific director and the neuroimaging unit of the Barcelonabeta Brain Research Center to design an interactive task like a video game that is controlled by the participants’ brain activity inside the magnetic resonance tomographer.
