The BRAiN’US project was born at the Brain and Spine Institute. The goal of the project is to gather information on how the brain really works.

The collaboration between « motivation, brain, behavior » team of ICM and the expertise of Ad Scientiam has allowed to develop a smartphone application.

This application is a participative science platform. Playing with BRAiN’US, users contribute to a scientific experiment in order to help researchers to better understand and analyze how the brain functions  (memory, attention, intuitions…) in patients affected by psychiatric conditions (anxiety, depression, schizophrenia…). 

BRAiN’US is composed of 8 playful tests, conceived to break down how brain takes decisions. The collected data is then analyzed by a mathematical model. The more used, the more accurate will be the analysis of how mental elementary mechanisms determine behavior.
