The inspiration for rapid EEG started in 2008 when Dr. Josef Parvizi was enjoying a performance by Kronos Quartet, whose melody was based on radio signals from the Sun Ring. Dr. Parvizi, a neurologist at Stanford, reached out to Chris Chafe, a professor of music research and expert in “musification”, for help to convert brain activity into sound. Though it started as an artistic pursuit, the two soon realized that the sonification of brain signals could be a powerful tool for brain monitoring. Learn more on the Stanford News.
In 2014, with the help of co-founder Jane Chao, the three (3) founded Brain Stethoscope, Inc., which later became Ceribell, Inc. With a robust R&D team, Ceribell designed and developed an instant EEG system, which was FDA cleared in 2017. Two (2) years later, Ceribell received the first-ever FDA clearance for an automatic seizure burden detection algorithm. Led by a visionary executive team, the Ceribell Rapid Response EEG system is the first critical care EEG and quickly becoming an important vital sign for the brain.
