Bengaluru-based deep-tech neuroscience startup, BrainSightAI has raised $750,000 in a seed round led by Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs India with participation from Entrepreneur First, RedStart backed by Info Edge Ventures, and IKP Knowledge Park.
The company plans to leverage the capital to further its mission to enable greater precision in diagnosis and treatment planning of neuro-oncological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
BrainSightAI has evovled as a promising startup that combines artificial intelligence (AI) and neuroscience to enable functional investigation through macroscopic brain-mapping for patients suffering from psychosis.
The first cloud-based neuroscience workflow allows neurosurgeons and neuro-radiologists to map the eloquent cortex of the brain using just resting-state fMRI, a task which they find extremely difficult especially for non-cooperative patients.
Laina Emmanuel, Co-founder and CEO, BrainSightAI, said, “We are now at an inflection point, where with data, lots of computing power, and artificial intelligence, we can cloud-enable complex neuroscience-based workflows. Now, doctors and researchers can focus on asking questions and not on the mechanics of answering questions.”
