Corundum Neuroscience Awards Research Grant to Prof. Yuval Nir for Pioneering Study

Corundum Neuroscience has awarded a research grant to Professor Yuval Nir!

Prof. Nir’s pioneering research will investigate the use of machine learning for the non-invasive detection of dementia associated-brain activity during sleep.

"There is currently no objective tool available with the necessary sensitivity to non-invasively detect and quantify the brain activity signatures we are investigating," says Prof. Nir.

"Our aim is to combine research on brain activity during sleep with machine learning, laying the groundwork for the measurement of abnormal brain states in dementia during sleep and, ultimately, to validate biomarkers for a wide range of neurological disorders."

"We are at a unique time in neuroscience, in which our understanding of the brain from a cellular to a systems level is both contributing to and benefitting from the revolution in AI," notes CNS' Chief Scientist, Joshua Schulman, PhD. "This project represents that synthesis and is part of Corundum's long-term strategy to support research that serves as the basis for innovative approaches to brain health."
