How wearable neurotechnology helps with depression recovery?

Over the past 30 years, scientists have increasingly understood psychiatric illnesses as disorders of brain network function. They suggest that when brain networks become hyper-or hypoactive, cognitive habits spiral, deteriorating our mental health.

Cameron Higgins, an Oxford University neuroscientist and entrepreneur, is at the forefront of understanding these changes in brain activity.

Join Cameron as he explains how brain network science underpins our mental health. You’ll also learn how his company’s technology combines a wearable headband and AI to support the development of healthy cognitive habits.

Bio

Cameron Higgins is the founder of Resonait Medical Technologies and an Honorary Research Scientist at Oxford University. His research career is focused on characterising how our brain networks can be monitored using wearable devices and what this tells us about brain function. Cameron founded Resonait to translate this knowledge into a new form of therapy for mental health. Resonait uses a home-based wearable headset to support people in their recovery from depression.
