The spin-off of the UMH Scientific Park Newmanbrain has been chosen as a finalist in the contest “Innova Proyecto del IV Certamen Premios Innova eVIA”. The company is specialized in the development of software and hardware for biomedical use, mainly in the areas of neuroscience and biomedicine. After the first choice of finalists, a jury of experts will conduct a second evaluation in which the winners of each category will be selected. The Innova eVIA Awards seek to recognize the effort in scientific and scientific excellence and innovative  solutions and developed services in the field of applied technologies to Health and Active Independent Living.

As its CEO , Pablo Belmonte, points out, this recognition is an important boost for the company: “Being among the best in the area of applied technology  to neurosciences and recognizing the effort made, entails a great satisfaction for our team. ” In addition, as part of its award, Newmanbrain will be able to publicize its project in the exhibition  organized by the event. This will take place during the day of the awards ceremony which will be held on Thursday, March 22  in Madrid.

During this event, the spin-off part of the Scientific Park of the UMH will present to the attendees some of the innovative technologies that they have developed for biomedical use. “We will show how our device works for the analysis of brain activity. A portable system that uses near infrared technology (fNIR) to measure and record brain functions,” says Belmonte. Furthermore, the company will show how this device helps to relate the response to certain stimuli (affective, cognitive, etc.) and alsod it relationship with the changes in cerebral blood flow that occurs during mental activity.

Newmanbrain is driven by the former director of the Institute of Neurosciences (IN), a mixed center between the UMH and the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), and professor emeritus of the UMH, Carlos Belmonte, by the worker of the Neurosciences Institute Alejandro Méndez, by the director of the Department of Physiology of the UMH, Joaquín Ibáñez, and by Pablo Belmonte. Currently, the company is focused on improving the software and hardware of its device to make it a product of high demand for professionals in Psychology and other potential buyers. Moreover, the company is developing new equipment for the assessment of various biological functions, using fNIR technology.

Newmanbrain collaborate at the II International Congress of Psychobiology

Newmanbrain collaborate at the II International Congress of PsychobiologyIn Avila (Spain), on July 19, 20 and 21, students of the PhD in Neuroscience at the Universidad Miguel Hernández, Sergio Ortuño, Marcos Mirete and Sergio Molina, as well as the professor of the Department of Physiology Joaquín Ibáñez, presented four papers in the II International Congress of Psychobiology in collaboration with the company Newmanbrain. The common theme of all the works was the near-infrared light technology as a useful tool for affective and cognitive assessment.

In particular the first communication entitled “Mapping conflict onto forehead: a near-infrared approach” is about the emotional reactions we experience in the viewing of images. Using different images of different valence and arousal we have been able to characterize in different spatial and temporal terms the different emotional reactions. The second communication entitled “Mapping mental load onto: forehead: a near infrared approach” talks about the vasomotor oscillations during the accomplishment of an arithmetical type cognitive task. The third, also deals with emotional aspects, under the title of “Mapping startle response onto forehead: a near-infrared approach” but in particular about emotional reactions of the defensive type as the startle response. “A Multimodal system for functional assessment of brain and systemic response” is the title of the fourth communication in which the possibility of making combined registers of near-infrared light spectroscopy together with electroencephalography is presented.
