What is the GBC?

The Global Brain Consortium (GBC) is as a diverse network of brain researchers, clinicians, and institutions committed to achieving improved and more equitable health outcomes worldwide. It is a Canada-based initiative that builds collaborative and dynamic relationships among globally-oriented health researchers, domestically as well as internationally.

Our mission is to address the challenges that need to be overcome to drive multinational collaborative efforts in support of Global Precision Brain Health by strengthening linkages between neuroscientists across borders and disciplines.

Survey developed by GBC Workgroup 6 on Clinical Applications of EEG and needs of the community:

Actual bioethical, clinical, and information technology barriers to be overcome for the clinical translation of EEG biomarkers and neurological and psychiatric diseases of interest

  • We invite experts in clinical translation of EEG biomarkers, societies of clinical neurosciences, patient advocates, Public Health organizations, pharmaceutical companies, ICT companies, etc. to complete the survey.
  • Survey results will be used to develop Global Brain Consortium consensus position papers on a roadmap for the introduction of the most promising and novel EEG biomarkers for use in public health systems with an emphasis on underserved populations in all countries, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Our goals are to improve good medical practice and prevention/screening/intervention clinical trials using EEG biomarkers, promoting sustainable neurological and psychiatric care systems, with a special attention to applications for low to middle income countries.
