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
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.
