We combine science, technology and humanistic principles to understand the human brain, cognition and consciousness. Our ultimate aim is to promote human values, empathy and mental health. Generating actionable knowledge is key for catalyzing real-world solutions.
We aim to illuminate and foster human cognitive and emotional capacities by combining scientific, humanistic and technological approaches.
We support scientists and innovators to crack the neural code and develop solutions for human connection and performance.
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
Fascinating technologies and methods for inferring cognitive and emotional states are rapidly being developed
Merging brains and machines is part of an inexorable future. We need to strive for the best, ethical science and clinical outcomes
Progress has been made in understanding the psychology of values and its neural correlates. Effective applications are needed
Using neural information to predict complex behaviors and decisions is an exciting new frontier to be explored
Probing the neural concomitants of unique conscious states and abilities will open new venues for human development
Scients Institute and IDOR sponsored the first Brazil at Silicon Valley Conference. This conference was a landmark event helping strengthen the bonds between US and Brazilian entrepreneurial, technological and scientific communities
Scients Institute is an affiliate member of Stanford Medicine's Presence initiative. Together, we will investigate the potential of neuroscience-based concepts and physiological fingerprints in promoting human values in doctor-patient interactions.
