International School San Patricio Toledo participates in an international project of neuroscience
Ten Spanish schools - among them International School San Patricio Toledo - will participate in the first phase of an international neuroscience project that will measure the concentration of 5,000 students from various countries while they are in class; an experiment that uses a diadem that registers the electromagnetic brain waves and takes advantage of technology from NASA for data processing.
The study will be conducted in 30-minute sessions in which ten students of the San Patricio Toledo International School will be exposed to various pedagogical resources to measure, in real time, their attention capacity.
"There is already technology that is capable of measuring the concentration of a person or the ability to concentrate on any stimulus," the pedagogical director of Progrentis, Emilio Torres, explains in an interview with Europa Press. This company has set up, together with the company BrianCo, this project that has already gone through Chinese and American schools, and now it is preparing to continue its experiment in Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Colombia and Spain.
Since last week, it has begun to test the concentration of students with the FocusEdu headband. The recorded information is processed with an algorithm created by NASA to test the concentration of astronauts.
