METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH

The human brain is the most complex organ that evolution brought to light. Decoding this black box, to completely understand its functioning, or even more, to replicate it is extremely challenging and not yet achieved. As much as the brain is intricate and fascinating so the related disorders can be debilitating and cause different sort of inconveniences.

HERMES team works in the main fields of Tissue Engineering, Neuromorphic Engineering and Information Technology (AI) appling different methodologies and technologies for the development innovative solutions to reduce the global burden of brain-related disorders.
