Iran, Germany, Canada join to scout talents via brain mapping

TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (MNA) – Iran, Germany and Canada are conducting a joint project funded by Iran National Science Foundation (INSF) in order to scout talents through brain mapping.

Iranian researcher Ali Gorji, director of Research Dep. at the University of Münster, Germany, in a press conference held at the Iran National Science Foundation (INSF) on Sun. announced a joint project between Iran, Germany and Canada funded by INSF which aims to scout talents among individuals through brain mapping.

Brain mapping is a set of neuroscience techniques which attempts to relate the brain's structure to its function, or finding what parts give individuals certain abilities. 

“Electroencephalography (EEG) is used to map the function of the human brain and the brain map will then identify the talents and abilities of individuals,” Gorji said.

The Iranian researcher went on to add the current EEGs do not include 40 to 50 percent of brain waves, but his team has managed to develop a device that can receive and record all brain waves.

“The project was first tested on animals and then on humans; it yielded positive and successful results,” said Gorji.

Gorji maintained that human brain maps can help distinguish differences of individuals in various skills and capabilities, so that people who are right for a certain kind of activity could be easily identified.

He added that in addition to brain mapping, the project also applies psychological tests.

“All human activities are directed by brain, so if we can map brain activity, we will be able to identify individuals’ talents in various fields based on their mentalities,” he said.
