Emerging technologies are contributing towards new developments in various branches of science, be it drug discovery or faster disease detection. The field of neuroscience is also reaping the benefits of modern technology as a graduate of the Berkeley SkyDeck accelerator program, Humm, has created a new device that claims to improve your working memory.
Back in April, a study published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience found some fascinating results. Under the study, a mild electric stimulation was applied to 70 year old participants and their performance in certain memory tasks was noted to be on par with 20-year-olds. It was conducted by researchers from Boston University.
Drawing from over 30 years of research in the field of neuroscience research, Humm created a device that applies a mild electrical stimulation to help stimulate the brain and improve memory. The startup has now raised €2.3 million in seed round that was led by the Berlin-based investor Blueyard Capital.
With the latest round of funding, Humm’s total disclosed funding amount is €2.7 million. As mentioned above, it secured €2.3 million in its latest round of funding, which was led by the Berlin-based investor Blueyard Capital. CRCM Venture Capital and the Berkeley SkyDeck Fund participated with additional funding.
