Neuroscape Alliance

The Neuroscape Alliance mission is to foster collaboration, share technology and resources, and refine our collective vision to result in greater global impact.

The Neuroscape Alliance is an affiliation of academic institutions, clinical centers, and research facilities around the world that share a common vision of leveraging new, non-invasive technology to advance translational neuroscience research. We strive to develop novel assessments and interventions with applications to education, wellness and medicine.

Current Affiliates:
  • University of Nice Sophia Antipolis – COBTEK IA [Nice, France]
  • Center Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) – NeuroTech [Lausanne, Switzerland]
  • Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at UCSF [San Francisco, USA]
  • Technion- Israel Institute of Technology – Educational Neuroimaging Center [Haifa, Israel]

With Neuroscape at UCSF acting as a hub, Alliance members receive the following benefits:

  • Participate in fellowship exchange programs
  • Establish Neuroscape Research Labs (NRLs)
  • Share software/ games
  • Annual meeting
  • Quarterly video conferences
  • Leverage access to new technologies
  • Access new funding opportunities
  • Shared wiki/ website
  • Provide/ receive technical support
  • Share best practices for study design
  • Perform multi-site clinical trials (study cultural influences)

University of Nice (France) – CoBTeK

Nice Sophia Antipolis University – CoBTeK IA

DirectorPhilippe Robert

CoBTeK (Cognition-Behavior-Technology) is a research unit attached to the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis. It is supported in part by Innovation A (IA) association.

The goals of  CoBTeK – IA are:
  • to develop clinical and translational research using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) in order to prevent, help diagnose, and assist patients suffering from neuropsychiatric and neuro-developmental disorders
  • to promote innovation and research on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases and neuro-developmental disorders
  • to develop knowledge on the use of information and communications technology in neuropsychiatric disorders and neuro-developmental disorders

Neuroscape and CoBTeK-IA plan to collaborate on research projects, share knowledge, exchange students, and work together to develop a network of research labs involved in the field of neuroscience, technology and human sciences.

University Hospital of Lausanne (Switzerland) –  NeuroTech

Center Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV) Lausanne –  NeuroTech

Director: Philippe Ryvlin

NeuroTech is a clinical research organization providing a platform dedicated to the medical, medico-economic, societal and ethical assessment of novel technologies to further improve patient care in clinical neuroscience, including mobile health solutions, immersive reality, exoskeletons and robotics.

NeuroTech is the first of its kind in Europe and has been developed by the Department of Clinical Neuroscience (DNC) at the CHUV, the Lausanne University Hospital. NeuroTech promotes clinical neuroscience and neurotechnology research and represents an in-house infrastructure for all the specialties and units of the DNC: i.e. neurology, brain and spinal surgery, the Leenaards Memory Center and neurorehabilitation.

Cognition and Cognitive Neurorehabilitation are major domains of NeuroTech, driven by:
  • assessment of behavioral and physiological factors underlying brain plasticity and cognitive recovery, and their accessibility for intervention
  • development of ICT-based approaches to cognitive diagnostics and neurorehabilitation, inspired by models from cognitive and computational neuroscience
  • brain imaging and neural stimulation to foster recovery of cognitive, affective, social and behavioral function in patients with neurological, neurosurgical and neuropsychiatric conditions, and cognitive disorders due to neurodegeneration

Neuroscape and NeuroTech will collaborate on research projects, share knowledge, exchange students, and work together to develop a network of research labs involved in the field of neuroscience, novel technologies and human sciences. The NeuroTech facilities and infrastructure will help to further promote assessment, evolution and implementation of clinical neuroscience approaches developed within Neuroscape.

Israel Institute of Technology (Israel) –  Educational Neuroimaging Center

Technion – Israel Institute of Technology – Educational Neuroimaging Center

Director: Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus

The Educational NeuroImaging Center (ENIC) at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is focused on determining the neuronal, cognitive, genetic, and environmental components that underlie both the typical and atypical development of the most important components of communication in children: language and reading.

Our research focuses on several domains:
  • Characterization of the underlying neuronal, cognitive, environmental, and genetic causes for language and reading difficulties in children suffering from these difficulties, such as in children with dyslexia, attention difficulties hyperactive disorder (ADHD), epilepsy, auditory-processing disorders, specific language impairments, psychiatric disorders, and more, through examination of the typical pathways of language and reading development in healthy children
  • Treatment for children with language and reading difficulties using a variety of intervention programs
  • Prevention of language and reading difficulties in all children
  • To objectively pinpoint the neural circuits related to language and reading, we use a variety of neuroimaging techniques, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), eye-tracking, and transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS). Using multi-modality analysis methods, we combine functional and structural connectivity datasets with behavioral and genetic data to establish a holistic understanding of the basis of language and reading difficulties.
