Large-scale support awarded for advanced Neuro-Behavioral Monitoring

Thilo Womelsdorf, Kari Hoffman and eight more members of a large-scale initiative received a large-scale infrastructure support grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, amounting to $3.1M federal support. This extraordinary award allows establishing – in Toronto- an advanced neuroscience infrastructure for conducting research of brain activity and behavior close to real world settings. For a press release see here.  Thanks to all team members to support this vision of Neuro-Behavioral Monitoring integrating computer vision scientists, engineers, data scientists, anthropologists/psychologists and systems neuroscientists to tackle the complexity of real-world attention and learning behaviors !
