MICHR-Supported Project Leads to Start-Up Company

Have you ever wanted to move something with your mind?

Neurable, a start-up company that grew out of a project funded by MICHR’s Pilot Grant Program, has developed a cap that can help people do just that. The cap is part of a system that detects brain wave activity and turns it into action – and it has allowed people to control toy cars, wheelchairs, and even a real car.
Jane Huggins, PhD, of the U-M Direct Brain Interface Laboratory, was principal investigator on the original project, which was also supported by Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) services. She and Ramses Alcaide, who was a graduate student research assistant on the grant, have worked with many U-M resources in their journey toward commercialization, including Tech Transfer, Fast Forward Medical Innovation, and the Center for Entrepreneurship.
