1 in 5 people suffer from a mental illness, such as depression, Alzheimer’s & Parkinon’s during their lifetime. Currently, there are no treatments for these diseases, because the underlying causes of these diseases is not known. Neurescence has developed a technology that is essential for understanding how local and long range neuronal circuits form to create healthy brain function, hence understand how these neuronal circuits are disrupted in each disease. This project is related in developing the techniques required to use this technology and the creation of training material, enabling Neurescence to offer training to its customers along side the technology, hence facilitate technology adoption. The result is not only helping to push our knowledge of the brain to find treatments for its diseases, but also helping Neurescence realize its commercial goals, resulting into creation of jobs for highly skilled workers in STEM fields.
