About Christopher deCharms:
Christopher deCharms is a serial entrepreneur, neuroscientist, social entrepreneur, author, inventor, and founder and CEO of Omneuron, a life sciences company focusing on new technologies for measuring and changing brain function based on pioneering imaging methods that allow people to watch the activation of their own brains 'live' using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). This allows people to learn to change the patterns of their own mind and mental functioning through changing their brain activation patterns. This work, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is in late-stage clinical trials for novel treatments of chronic pain, depression, and anxiety. Recently deCharms has founded Brainful Inc to provide the Omneuron technologies to people worldwide by mobile/web for the treatment of chronic pain, presented in 2014 at LeWeb. deCharms is also founding president of Civizen Inc. which is developing a new technology to stop violence and promote safety.
