About the event
PBHM Investigator, Claire Gillan, will feature on 'Change Makers', a docuseries by RTE One in association with the Irish Universities Association. Dr Claire Gillan is combining mobile technology with citizen science to help create a clearer picture of what keeps the brain healthy. The Neureka App asks members of the public to participate in neuroscience research at home, by playing games and tracking their mood and behaviour over time. With thousands of people already involved, this ‘big data’ allows the team to figure out new ways of keeping mental health problems at bay, and promoting resilience to late life cognitive decline. Participating in the project the players at Monaghan Rugby club are amongst the first users of the App’s Pattern Wise feature that tracks behaviour and inputs the information into a data pool which will help understand why some people are more likely to fall into bad habits.
This episode will air on RTE One at 8:30pm on January 17th, or you can catch up on the RTE player.
