Infinitome Imaging Award
The Brainbox Initiative is proud to team up with Omniscient Neurotechnology and Dr Michael Sughrue, one of the world's leading neurosurgeons from the Prince of Wales Hospital (Australia), to offer one non-invasive brain stimulation researcher the opportunity to augment their planned or ongoing study with access to their state-of-the-art connectomics platform, Infinitome, as well as a generous financial backing to support the collection of MRI data for participants, up to a value of $20,000.
What is Connectomics, and how could it help my NIBS research?
Connectomics is the big data approach to constructing and analyzing a computer-generated map of the brain's functional connectivity. The definition of connectomics stems from the word “genomics,” which is the use of big data to study genetics in organisms. Connectomics borrows the “-omics” suffix from genomics because it applies a similar approach to analyzing the massive datasets required to model the human connectome. Ongoing modeling of the brain has quickly become one of the most complicated, but most exciting big data challenges of our time.
We encourage all researchers working with non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (tES, TMS, and TUS) and/or imaging techniques to apply for this prestigious award. As detailed above, the winner of this award will receive:
- Free-of-charge access to the Infinitome connectomics platform, which can provide deep insights in the connections between different brain (sub)regions based on an individual participant's MRI data, as well as comparisons to a large bank of control data based on healthy brain scans;
- A generous startup cash bonus to help with subject recruitment;
- Ongoing funding to provide MRI scans, up to the value of $20,000, for subjects;
- And expert technical support and expertise from the Brainbox team to help with the non-invasive brain stimulation areas of the study.
To apply for this award, all applicants must be working with at least one method of non-invasive brain stimulation, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), and/or transcranial focused ultrasound stimulation (TUS/tFUS), as well as any neuroimaging techniques (fNIRS, EEG).
Thank you for your award application.
