The “Human Enhanced group (HET)” of LENI, investigates the use of certain technologies that have the potential to improve human abilities. Technology has moved away from merely making our lives more convenient, and now it has the potential to change every aspect of what we are as humans. Human enhancement technologies (HET) are techniques that can be used not simply for treating illness and disability, but also for enhancing human characteristics and capacities. HET refers to the convergent application of techniques such as information technologies and cognitive neuroscience, among others, to improve human capabilities.
The areas of research are:
Computer assisted psycology
Presence in virtual environment
Neuroleadership and neuromanagement
