“Boldly exploring our thinking machine”

Short summary:
The brain’s inner workings are a largely uncharted territory. State-of-the-art technology allows researchers to probe the brain’s activity by measuring blood supply changes with unprecedented details. This project looks at which details are best for mapping the brain’s activity.

Why this video?
BrainGain is a Dutch research consortium that researches and develops neurotechnologies. Research topics include for example Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), neurostimulation (eg. Deep Brain Stimulation) and neurofeedback. braingain.nl

On 18-20 December 2011 BrainGain held its annual meeting at the University of Maastricht (the Netherlands). The focus of this year's meeting was value creation and communication to patient organisations and industry.

One highlight of the meeting was the competition of the BiG talks. Our idea was that BiG Talks should be the opposite of small talk. BiG talk = to-the-point communication of a clear, facilitating and enabling message in 3 minutes. The BiG talks forced us to reflect on the essential and most interesting aspects of our research. The most persuasive speakers were rewarded with a prize.
