We combine science, technology and humanistic principles
to promote human values, empathy and mental health.
We aim to illuminate and foster human values and cooperation by combining scientific, humanistic and technological approaches.
We connect and support scientists and innovators across nations to crack the neural code and develop solutions for human connection.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Silicon Valley, California. We collaborate closely with international partners.
Great progress is under way on the neuroscience of altruism and empathy. Check current initiatives here
