  • We received a grant from the Bial Foundation, in collaboration with dr. Uffe Schjoedt (Arhus University) and prof. dr. Marcel Brass (University of Ghent) on "Unleashing the Hidden Powers of the Mind Through Manipulating Belief in Cognitive Enhancement Devices". Starting in July 2017 we will further explore the potential of placebe brain stimulation to manipulate human experience and performance!
