BEL Company

BEL (Brain Electrophysiology Laboratory) is a neuroscience technology company dedicated to advancing the study and understanding of the human brain. 

BEL was founded by Dr. Don Tucker, PhD, and CEO.  Dr. Tucker invented the Geodesic Sensor Net through his former company, EGI (Electrical Geodesics, Inc.) and continues to pioneer new technologies in the field of brain research. Dr. Phan Luu, PhD, and Chief Science Officer, brings expertise to the science team of BEL. His experience includes successful EEG and neuromodulation product development as well as many years as head of Science at EGI. 

BEL’s Geodesic Head Web for dense array EEG is compatible with Ripple’s Quest HD and Magstim/EGI’s EEG systems. BEL’s SOURCERER software for source analysis utilizes cloud computing, machine learning and new inverse methods. BEL’s cloud based FLOW EEG/ERP database and workflow manager streamlines laboratory processes, improves reproducibility and enhances collaboration. 

All of the BEL products are developed under BEL's Quality System, meeting regulatory standards for future US FDA, Chinese FDA, and European CE certification.  This assures the highest standards for safety and accuracy, important for IRB and ethics committee certification.

Psychology professor is first from the University of Oregon named to inventors academy

Psychology professor is first from the University of Oregon named to inventors academy. You could call it a thinking cap, but Don Tucker's signature invention is really meant to capture brain waves, not inspire them. Tucker is a UO professor and inventor of the geodesic sensor net, a device that vastly simplified and improved the way researchers see and measure brain activity. It was such a revolutionary advancement that Tucker recently was named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, becoming the first UO faculty member ever to receive the honor.
