Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month - Brain Research with Digitimer

Updated: Sep 17, 2023


Digitimer brain research - Alzheimer and brain awareness

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, and Digitimer is a leader in brain research instrumentation. The company has been developing and

manufacturing innovative electrophysiology equipment for over 50 years, and its

products are used by scientists and researchers around the world. Digitimer's products

are helping to advance our understanding of the brain and to develop new treatments

and therapy for neurological disorders.


Here is some of the cutting edge research that is happening in the brain medical

research industry with the help of Digitimer products:


 The Neuro-X Lab is a multidisciplinary neuromodulation, engineering, and

innovation laboratory housed within the Department of Psychiatry at the Medical

University of South Carolina and directed by Dr. Bashar W. Badran. Neuro-X

fosters an environment of neurotechnology and innovation to begin addressing

complex medical and neuropsychiatric disorders.


 The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at the University of Miami is well known for

their research on neural engineering, neurodegenerative diseases including

Alzheimer’s, neurophysiology, and neuroplasticity. Matija Milosevic and his team

are taking a close look at the development of a neuromodulation method for

facilitation of corticospinal plasticity.


 Brain-computer interfaces: Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are devices that

allow people to control computers and other devices with their thoughts. BCIs are

being developed for people with paralysis and other neurological conditions.

Doug Weber and his research team at Carnegie Mellon University combines

fundamental neuroscience and engineering research to understand physiological

mechanisms underlying sensory perception, feedback control of movement, and

neuroplasticity in sensorimotor systems.


 Catherine Ding at the Neuroengineering and Biomedical Instrumentation Lab

within Johns Hopkins University is researching cortical responses of sensory

feedback. Their current research uses EEG to study dynamic sensorimotor

processing under sensory stimulation and characterize responses in chronic pain

patients.


So much research on the brain is happening throughout the world. These are only a

few examples where researchers are looking ahead to a brighter and better future by

further understanding how the brain works.


Digitimer is committed to advancing brain research and to developing new

technologies that can help people with neurological disorders. The company is a

leading provider of electrophysiology equipment, and its products are helping to

make a difference in the lives of people around the world.


Here are some ways that you can celebrate Brain Awareness Month and support the

work of companies like Digitimer:


 Learn more about the brain: There are many resources available online and in

libraries.


 Donate to organizations that support brain research: There are many

organizations that are working to advance brain research. You can donate your

time or money to support their work.


 Get involved in Brain Awareness Month activities: There are many events and

activities happening around the world to celebrate Brain Awareness Month. You

can find a list of events in your area by searching online.


By learning more about the brain, donating to organizations that support brain research,

and getting involved in Brain Awareness Month activities, you can help to make a

difference in the lives of people with neurological disorders.
