Our researches are aimed at developing new technologies for studying the brain and for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the nervous system. Such as new methods of processing and fusion of neuroimaging, methods to study brain connectivity, characterize the maturation of basic psychological and neural processes in school age children and new methods to characterize auditory and visual sensory processes.

We work on several projects of social impact related to disabilities caused by neural dysfunction, neurodevelopmental problems and aging, covering major populations groups, closing R & D cycle to ensure the creation of new products.

Main Projects

Maestría en Neurociencias Technology for neurodevelopmental disorders management. This project has the overall objective of developing a technological package dedicated to the detection and treatment of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders at school age, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and attention deficit with or without hyperactivity.
Escuela InternacionalAlzheimer's disease. Search biomarkers, diagnosis and treatment. Obtaining and evaluating a variety of organic compounds (referred Amylovis) which can be used as precursors for the diagnosis and act as modulators of the protein misfolding process.
EventosAging, Technology assessment and intervention. Study of an early marker that predicts the evolution of the neurodegenerative processes such as Alzheimer's disease and other syndromes, allowing more accurate diagnosis and identification of new intervention strategies and / or cognitive rehabilitation.
