Working closely with top UK neuro-scientists to understand human brain anatomy, memory and other leading neuro-science research topics, this work led to the automation of their aggregation algorithms allowing NeuroCo to efficiently map, mathematically analyse, and graphically output results in a client-friendly, easily-interpretable format, saving their researchers considerable time and money.
