Academia

Science. Research. Joy.

Exciting new frontiers have been identified in the quest to enable healthy individuals to find increased resilience and improve their emotional wellbeing. We initiate and fund research and technology development to advance this important endeavor.

The Joy Grant
Program

Joy Ventures aims to facilitate the creation of a joint, inter-disciplinary, collaborative ecosystem between academia and industry. The goal is to implement the latest advancements in neuroscience, technology and related fields for improving the everyday human experience and emotional well-being by cultivating mental resilience, reducing mental vulnerability and allowing people to cope beneficially with difficulties and challenges of daily life. Joy’s long-term goal is to create solutions catering individuals directly, with no need for FDA clearance or medical guidance/supervision.

Post Doc
Program

Joy Ventures runs a unique post-doc program for highly applicative research projects. We are interested in different ways to effectively and safely stimulate the nervous system in non-invasive ways. The ultimate target of the stimulation would be the non-clinical, generally healthy, human population, with the aim of improving mood enhancement or emotion regulation. The program provides fellowship funding and industry-oriented mentoring sessions.

Academic
Courses

Neurowellness is at the center of an academic course offered now for the second year at the Hebrew University. The course, “Special topics in Neurowellness”, headed by Dr. Mor Nahum, hosts a variety of visiting lecturers and provides an overview of the most recent advances in the field. The course consists of units covering affect and emotion regulation, sleep, brain plasticity and applicative aspects.
