Driving with Intuition: Advancing Intuition Research Through Virtual Reality

March 1, 2024 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (PST)

ConnectIONS Live!

Join us for an insightful free webinar with IONS Senior Research Associate Cédric Cannard, PhD, where we’ll explore the exciting potential of virtual reality (VR) in advancing intuition research. 

Despite consistent findings in past intuition research studies, translating these effects into real-world applications has proven challenging due to the limitations of traditional research environments. 

In this talk, Cedric will discuss a new study conducted at IONS’ cutting-edge laboratory called “Driving with Intuition”, and share about how you can participate in this groundbreaking research. Using innovative technology to measure brain, heart, and eye activity in a virtual driving environment, the study aims to develop a sensitive and reliable measure of intuition with practical implications. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to join us as we delve into this promising research and its potential to revolutionize our understanding of intuition.

All registrants will receive a link to the recording. Please register even if you can’t attend live.


Cédric Cannard, PhD, completed a Bachelor in Sports Science and an MSc in Neuropsychology and Clinical Neuroscience. During his MSc, he worked on brain atrophies in Schizophrenia (Magnetic Resonance Imagery; MRI) at the “Imaging and Therapeutical Strategies in Cerebral and Tumoral Pathologies” Research unit (ISTCT, Caen, France), and then on brain oscillations (electroencephalography; EEG) underlying color vision and perception at the “Cente de Recherche Cerveau et Cognition” laboratory (CerCo, Toulouse, France).

In early 2022, Cédric completed his PhD in Neuroscience co-funded by the CerCo (CNRS, Toulouse, France) and the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS, California), under the co-supervision of Drs Helane Wahbeh and Arnaud Delorme, focusing on well-being, advanced EEG methods, and on collecting large EEG datasets in real-world settings using wearable neurotechnology.

Since then, he has joined the IONS Science team as Sr. Research Associate, working at the intersection between biosignal analysis (EEG, ECG, PPG, EDA, EGG), developing open-source tools (e.g., the BrainBeats toolbox), wearable neurotechnologies, well-being, altered states of consciousness, and psi.
