Champalimaud scientists to develop a wearable behavior analysis system for clinic and research
A team at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown has been awarded a Proof of Concept grant of 149.820 euros by the European Research Council (ERC) to develop a prototype for a new system of behaviour analysis, based on sensors similar to those used in cell phones to detect movement, that will make it possible to accurately and automatically measure human behavior related to nervous system disorders.
