Welcome to interActive Systems – Brain Net

Brain-Net is a neuropathological reference work, for diseases of the central nervous system such as Alzheimer`s, Depression, Parkinson’s disease, Schizophrenia, and others.
Brain tissue samples will be collected, diagnosed by specialists, and stored. These samples will be made available to other researchers upon request through a database in the internet. The iAS has been assigned the technical coordination as well as the design and construction of the user interface. Because iAS is also responsible for the technical implementation of Knowledge Network Parkinson, the two Neuro-MedNets can be coordinated.
Why the Brain-Net is necessary Our knowledge concerning the biochemistry of the brain is increasing, leading to ever new insights into the genetics of brain diseases, as well as to a deeper understanding of functional anatomy – due to various imaging techniques. Consequently, brain and tissue banking is much needed in order to improve the quality of work in neurology and psychiatries.

Welcome to interActive Systems – Knowledge Network Parkinson

On January 15, 1999, the German government decided to sponsor nine medical competence networks, among them the Kowledge Network Parkinson. For this network, iAS has taken on the responsibility of the network technology and the design of the user interfaces.Please click below to go to Knowledge Network Parkinson.

What is Parkinson?The idiopathic Parkinson syndrome (Parkinson disease) is the most common affectation of the basal ganglia. It is caused by a damage of the neurons in the substantia nigra inducing a shortage of dopamine in the striatum.

Welcome to interActive Systems – Transformation

The transformation of accumulated information into actual knowledge is a matter of central importance for the iAS.
But how is information turned into knowledge? Or, more generally, how does a society based on information become a society based on knowledge?
To start with, we need to join the databases of technical information with those of semantical information, to lay the foundation for a new system of knowledge.
The prerequisite for this step is an intelligent and uniform system that can navigate through and visualize the decentralized databases. Only then can a large amount of data be structured clearly enough to reveal correlations, making it possible to merge the fragmentary pieces of information into real knowledge. The iAS is highly competent in this field.
At present, iAS develops a high security system which is required for the FDA-conform input of scientific data within the scope of clinical studies.

Neuro Anatomy – Intro

The iAS has developed and produced a number of breathtaking exponats for the world fair Expo2000. Ahead of all, the “virtual human being”, but also installations for the thematic area “humankind” which deals with a wide variety of facets of human life. For this area, the iAS produced the multimedia installations “The time cube” (“Der Zeitwürfel”), “The fingerprints of thinking” (“Fingerabdruck des Denkens”), “The control loop of laughter” (“Regelkreis des Lachens”) and “The 3D Box” (“3D-Würfel”). These expressive and profound multimedia productions show the visitor his body and soul from a different viewpoint and give new insights into the fascinating world of the human brain.
