neuroscience

Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is the scientific study of the nervous system. It is a multidisciplinary branch of biology, that deals with the anatomy, biochemistry, molecular biology, and physiology of neurons and neural circuits. It also draws upon other fields, with the most obvious being pharmacology, psychology, and medicine.

You can probably imagine our brain. But never before have there been images available at such a high resolution.

 

Event
Can we grow our own brain or muscles in a petri dish? Guy Ben-Ary will show and tell us how he was able to make living cells in the lab.

 

Event
Hack the Brain Dublin is an immersive creative weekend in Science Gallery Dublin which aims to get artists, designers, neuroscientists, experimental psychologists, developers and engineer working together in transdisciplinary teams to develop ideas into prototype artworks, objects, inventions or interfaces which use or harness brain signals and brain-computer interface (BCI) technology.

 

Event
Pieter van Boheemen will give a hands-on workshop at the annual Annual PhD-Student Meeting of the Graduate School Neurosciences Amsterdam Rotterdam (ONWAR) and Brain Center Rudolf Magnus (Utrecht).

Hack yourself better (or worse): this year's edition of Hack the Brain was all about health. What happens when you bring together a group of 54 artists, (neuro)scientists and coders for 72 hours?

 

Event
On Friday 24th of June 2016, the public evening of the Hack the Brain 2016 hackathon will be held, themed 'Hack yourself better (or worse)'.

BrainHack

BrainHack: Bringing the arts and sciences of brain and neural computer interface together

 

Event
Brain hacking at room 211. On 7 November, Hack the Brain will have a small extension at the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam, during the IDEA festival. Theme of this festival is the connection of perceptions, and we wil take this very literally. At 16.30 hours, Pieter van Boheemen will control a philosopher with the human-to-human interface (by Backyard Brains). Philosopher Hein van Dongen will reflect on this act.

 

Article
On June 5th, 2015, Waag and Total Active Media kicked off the second edition of Hack the Brain. This year's theme was “The Brain and Education.” Over three days, six teams of software developers, artists, and neuroscientists came up with seven exciting new educational applications.

 

Event
We're kicking off the second edition of the Brain Hack with a brain-stimulating evening. During the program, we'll be playing with memory with the Donders Institute, watching a brain-performance by Arnon Grunberg, and eating grey matter with culinary columnist, Joel Broekaert.

 

Event
Hack the Brain is terug! Deze tweede editie dagen we wetenschappers, (game)ontwikkelaars en onderwijsprofessionals uit om leerprocessen in ons brein te beïnvloeden door Do It Yourself brainhacking.

 

Project
In Hack the Brain - Education, we explored how current available neuroscientific knowledge and neurotechnologies can be applied to improve learning and the learning environment - now and in the foreseeable future.

 

Event
The annual Museum night Amsterdam is coming and for the twelfth time in row Waag is again participating in the event. This year we are organizing a kind of follow-up to our earlier 'Hack the Brain' event, called 'Brainwaves' at the Waag.

 

Article
From the cozy tower rooms to the FabLlab and Makers Guild, every corner of the Waag building at the Nieuwmarkt was turned into temporary workspaces during Hack the Brain for 10 different teams of (software) developers, neuroscientists and creative minds during the weekend of 23rd-25th of May 2014. Each one of these teams had the same goal: creating the best brain hack.

 

Project
During the first Hack the Brain event in 2014 experts gathered to explore the opportunities of DIY brainhacking.

 

Article
Hack the Brain was the first gathering in Europe where experts joined to explore the opportunities of DIY brainhacking. Researchers, hackers, designers and artists came together during the weekend of 23-25 May 2014 to bring neuroscience to the next level, with the help of DIY Brainhacking. We organised a bootcamp, a debate and pitches of the best hacks. Hack the Brain is a yearly event.

 

Article
Come explore DIY neurology on 4 April 2014! We make some easy hacks: take control over someone else's arm, hear a neuron spike and build your own cyborg.

 

Event
Scientists are slowly unraveling the mysterious composition and mechanisms of the human brain. Technology that enables us to interact digitally with grey matter will inevitably follow up on these discoveries. What are the limitations of today’s neuro science and what dogmas are pushed beyond their breaking point? Join if you are interested in DIY experiments with easily accessible tools. We make simple hacks ourselves, like Arduino electronics that help you take control over someone else’s arm
