Congratulations Engineering Physics students Giulio Sucar and Jessica Ma for a second place finish in both categories – the open challenge and the fixed challenge – of the NeurotechX 2018 competition!
The team made an app that measures ADD biomarkers, aiming for an objective ADD / ADHD diagnostic, and built a full EEG acquisition system, Mentha 1.0.
Giulio: “I was surprised to see most of my degree being useful in our designs, and impressed by how far we could go in hardware, circuitry and software integration. Most importantly, we were putting all of those skills to use into useful things. We got to question what neuroscience could look like if it were patient-centric and affordable, and then we went and built it! As an engineer I’m proud of what we built, and as a person, I’m excited for what we haven’t yet done.”
