Brain Awareness Week

Another great Brain Awareness Week here at Dalhousie. Members of the lab were busy this week at different events, including the Brain Fair, where neuroscience labs provided demonstrations and hands-on fun and games for people of all ages. LBRF members helped students with their TMS target practice as well as controlling a robot with their brainwaves!

PhD student Sarah Kraeutner demonstrates neuronavigated TMS at the Brain Fair. Kids had the chance to hone their TMS skills. While the event was stimulating, no one’s actual brain was stimulated!

An Entrepreneurial Mind

PhD Candidate Tony Ingram was part of team “Nootronics” who took home the RADIANT Cup for best pitch in the recent NICE Summer Institute. NICE, which stands for Neurotechnology, Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship, is a two-week intensive program that trains students to “think differently” about how their research can be translated into real-world applications. NICE focuses on commercialization through start-up companies, and culminates with teams pitching their start-ups to investors. Congratulations Tony and team “Nootronics”!
