RADAR-CNS at New Scientist Live

A team from RADAR-CNS hosted a stand at the New Scientist Live event at the ExCeL London in September last year. The event is a festival of science and ideas that attracted almost 40,000 guests who listened to 100 talks and interacted with over demo 150 stands.

A team from RADAR-CNS hosted a stand at the New Scientist Live event at the ExCeL London in September last year. The event is a festival of science and ideas that attracted almost 40,000 guests who listened to 100 talks and interacted with over 150 demo stands.

Guests were able to interact with the devices used in the depression and epilepsy components of the study at the RADAR-CNS stand. They could see the live streaming data from the epilepsy devices – including heart rate and electrodermal activity, performed thinking tests used in the major depressive disorder study, among other activities. The team also showcased preliminary data from the RADAR-BASE, which enables active and passive remote data collection, secure data transmission and data storage for researchers and clinicians.

“Representing RADAR-CNS at the event was an inspirational experience, not only because it allowed us to share our passion for our research with members of the public, but also to have inspirational and substantive conversations about the future of healthcare with people from all ages and walks of life who find relevance in what we do” says Alina Ivan, Research Assistant working on the RADAR depression package at King’s College London. 

Researchers from King’s College London attended from several RADAR-CNS project teams, including our depression and epilepsy team, as well as software developers and other researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.
