Forging innovative solutions by merging art and science

In the latest episode of Impetus Digital's Fireside Chat, we dive into the concept of merging art and science with Ariel Garten, Founder & Chief Evangelism Officer at Muse. Ariel Garten is the Founder of InteraXon, makers of Muse: the award-winning headband that makes meditation easier. She studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto, worked in labs at Toronto’s Krembil Neuroscience Centre researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis, and was also a therapist in private practice. Ariel’s uncommon combination of science and art is integral to the design of Muse and to InteraXon’s unique approach to brain-sensing technology. In this webinar, we explore many exciting topics such as the idea of whether art and beauty can be broken down into biological codes, the resurgence of meditation, the concept of "Pause" during COVID-19 and many more meaty subjects.
