Indonesia is now at the forefront of new advances in neuroscience and technology
In a remote laboratory two hours from the Indonesian capital, scientists are working on technology to research on the brain. A 47-year-old scientist — Warsito Purwo Taruno — has established the Centre for Tomography Research Laboratory in Alam Sutera. It was set up in 2010.
The centre carries out research on the practical application of ECVT, an advanced scanning technology using an electrical signal. The researchers claim to be the first in the world to use four-dimension (4D) brain imaging and chaos encoding methods.
Warsito Purwo Taruno explained, “We can record at high speed the brain activity from 32,000 brain pixels simultaneously, and we will document varying levels of activity from different points in our brain. While we get 3D data from the brain itself, we combine that with the differences of brain activity to produce 4D data of the brain.”.
