What is well-being? How do we study it? The primary goal of studying well-being is to help increase human happiness and functioning around the world. But, studying well-being can be difficult. Well-being is a complex construct that changes over time, and it is influenced by many factors.
Join ConnectIONS Live on Friday, September 30th, when IONS Senior Research Associate Cédric Cannard will discuss his exciting research on well-being and wearable technologies. You’ll find out why heart-rate variability and electroencephalography (EEG) are promising objective measures for capturing the physiological activity tied to well-being. And, you’ll discover the latest innovative tools, methods, and wearable technologies that are part of this research.
How Wearable Technologies Can Support Well-Being
Friday September 30th
11:00am – 12:00pm PDT
Please register even if you can’t attend live and you’ll receive an email with a link to the recording.
Cédric Cannard completed a Bachelors in sport science and a MSc in neuroscience during which he worked brain atrophies (MRI) associated with Schizophrenia with the ISTCT laboratory in Caen, France, and then on brain oscillations (EEG) involved in color vision processing with the CerCo Laboratory in Toulouse, France. He then moved to California to become a research assistant for the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), and in December 2018 received a 3-year grant to work on his PhD in neuroscience under the co-supervision of Drs. Helané Wahbeh (IONS) and Arnaud Delorme (CerCo, France), focusing on well-being, EEG methods, wearable neurotechnologies, and consciousness. In early 2022, Cédric completed his PhD from Paul Sabatier University, CNRS, France, and joined the IONS Science team full-time as a Senior Research Associate.
