Halo Neuroscience

Halo Neuroscience develops devices that use neurostimulation technology to target the brain to enhance performance for able and impaired users.

The company’s product Halo Sport is a headset the uses pulses of energy meant to improve the brain’s response to training by affecting connections between neurons and muscles. Halo Sport is claimed to increase the brain’s natural plasticity and create or strengthen motor pathways faster. With the device, small electric current is applied to the motor cortex, the part of the brain that controls movement. This causes the neurons to fire more often during training. The form of brain stimulation used is called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Halo claims the device can provide benefits when used along with rigorous training.



In 2019, a study by researchers at Shanghai University of Sport provided evidence that Halo Sport can improve cycling performance and cognitive performance in a Stroop test.
