BrainModes is an ongoing research project to visualise the human brain, in real time, with brainwave reading headsets (EEG). Currently, one can view 7 modalities of 3D brain visualisations from neuroscience on mobile or desktop. Muse, Emotiv Epoc, and other EEG headsets can be used to observe personalised brain activity in the App. Additionally, we have created some fun games using brain data, which can teach you how to maintain brain states like relaxation and concentration. Created in Unity, and custom libraries, this is a research project in collaboration with Charité University of Medicine, with a talented and diverse team lead by Dr. Petra Ritter.

Brain Atlas, where one can click on parts of the brain and learn more about that region in English, Arabic, Hebrew or German. One can also click on the names of functions to highlight associated regions with a small explanation. You can try this scene in a browser here:
