Neurotechnology has many promising applications including training the brain to improve performance and prevent cognitive decline; improving safety in automobiles by monitoring drowsiness, cognitive load, and distraction; and controlling devices in our external environment. Current technology requires headsets to be worn to acquire neuro data. While these devices are elegant in design, the public has refused widespread acceptance. Freer Logic will present an advancement of neuromonitoring by demonstrating a non-contact, discreet neuromonitor that obviates the need for the traditional headset form factor. Since the non-contact neuromonitor can read brain data at a distance without a headset, it can be implanted in an office chair or automobile headrest to become part of our environment to provide everyone access to all the promising applications neuromonitors offer.
Speaker Biography (Peter Freer)
Peter Freer pioneered the consumer use of neuro technology. In 1994, Freer created Play Attention, an interactive neurofeedback learning system that is the currently the most widely used educational neurocognitive program for ADHD students distributed in 10 different languages. Play Attention has three randomized, controlled studies performed by Tufts University School of Medicine. All have outstanding results and have been published in three peer reviewed journals. His contributions to the field of neuroscience have garnered 7 patents with others pending. He has lectured on behalf of NASA at the National Space Society and lectured at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria. Freer is co-author of a white paper on human performance with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of the United Nations. His latest work is the creation of body-based brain monitoring and non-contact neuro monitors. His team is currently working with the automotive and consumer electronics industries to integrate the technology in automobiles to monitor driver distraction and drowsiness.
Company Profile (Freer Logic)
Located in North Carolina, Freer Logic specializes in the development and use of neuro monitors that acquire neuro signal away from the head through the body or through non-contact such as in an automobile headrest.
Freer Logic has 3 verticals; automotive, consumer electronics, and training. Automotive work focuses on in-vehicle headrests that monitor driver distraction, cognitive load, and drowsiness. Consumer use centers round body-based wearables dubbed BodyWave® technology which allow control of apps by mind alone, monitor emotions, stress, attention, peak performance, and meditation. Freer Logic trains Olympic athletes, da Vinci robotic surgeons, NASA astronauts, nuclear operators, and others.
