About AFNP

AFNP is dedicated to the production of new and sophisticated computational tools, oriented to Biological and Neurological applications. Our Research & Development department is currently focused on the wide spectrum of Neurodegenerative disorders such as Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease and Knowledge extraction from Neuroinformatics Applications. During 2017 a new software was created for handling patients with dementia using Enrichment Sensory Environments via EEG recording and processing, with several more functionalities like brain visualization and sound composing for individualized treatment. Currently, new ideas and applications are under process for enriching the biomedical and neurological research
