Forest Neurotech is a Focused Research Organization (FRO) developing an ultrasound-based whole-brain-computer interface (wBCI) aimed at catalyzing research to better understand and treat the human brain. Co-founded by Dr. Sumner L. Norman, Forest leverages advanced ultrasound technology to measure and stimulate brain-wide activity in a minimally invasive manner. This approach opens new avenues for personalized diagnostics, monitoring, and closed-loop therapies across a wide range of psychiatric and cognitive disorders. By focusing on whole-brain activity, Forest’s wBCI platform has the potential to significantly accelerate progress in neuroscience, providing a robust tool for both research and clinical applications. This approach promises to transform the landscape of neurological sciences and treatment, moving us closer to a future where neurotechnology can enhance the human condition in profound ways.
