Muse senses your brain activity like a heart monitor senses your heart and sends that information to your phone or tablet – giving you real time feedback of what your brain is doing moment to moment. Ariel studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto and worked in labs at Toronto’s esteemed Krembil Neuroscience Centre researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. No mere science nerd, Ariel is also a fashion designer whose clothing opened Toronto Fashion Week in 2003 and has been sold across North America; and has had her work displayed at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Ariel is also trained as a psychotherapist with her own private practice, focusing on clients with anxiety disorder. Ariel’s unique combination of science and art is integral to the design of Muse and to InteraXon’s unique approach to brain sensing technology. Ariel and Muse: the Brain Sensing Headband is regularly lauded in global media, including CNN, Forbes, Popular Science, CNET, CNBC, VentureBeat, TechCrunch, the Wall Street Journal Tech and others, for creating what VentureBeat calls “the most important wearable of 2014.”
