Transformation X Neuroscience

How to break dysfunctional habits and establish new adaptive habits that sustain?

The neuroscience of organizational change

For an organization to change, its members have to change their individual behaviors. Individual change in behavior in turn requires the change of neural connections. Hence, every organizational transformation is ultimately based on neural plasticity in its members’  brains.


Sustainable transformation

Effective and sustainable organizational development not only requires an in-depth understanding of individual and organizational psychology, but applied neuroscience.

Future of Work

How can organizations and governments better understand and shape the future of work?

In the news

Oxford Engineering covers the latest project by Wolfgang Frühwirt (Oxford Machine Learning Research Group) and Paul Duckworth (Oxford Robotics Institute). They used artificial intelligence to better understand the Future of Work in healthcare. >>

AI & Neuroscience

How to practically apply AI to improve medical diagnostics for dementia?

Crypto bubbles <> Alzheimer’s disease

What do bubbles in crypto assets and brain wave patterns in Alzheimer’s disease have in common?

Crypto bubbles <> Alzheimer’s disease

In an Oxford study, Wolfgang Fruehwirt and colleagues (2021) analyzed crypto market bubbles with data science methods they also used in neuroscience. The team showed that in the crypto market the same pattern exists as in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients.
>>

Instability leads to higher co-dependence

When complex systems such as human brains or crypto markets become more unstable, the co-dependence between their constituent parts increases dramatically.
>>

Highlights of study

First study of its kind to use intraday data (5-min resolution).•

Highly significant (p <  2.2e−16) structural change in the relationships between cryptocurrencies towards instability, as indicated by increased wavelet coherence after the Bitcoin peak.•

Robustness of findings demonstrated by extensive sensitivity analysis.•

Visualizations with high time-frequency resolution vividly depicting bubble dynamics.•

A large variety of well-known and lesser-known cryptocurrencies is considered.

Rescuing the human subject

In a world of data and algorithms, how can the human subject be saved?

The singularity of being

What renders each of us irreplaceable and unexchangeable?

What makes it impossible to substitute one subject for another, or to mistake one person for another?

It is our subjective singularity (Ruti, 2012).

test

Therefore, the increasing infiltration of our personal lives with data and objective algorithms is threatening the very core of our human existence: the human subject.
