MindGAP aims to bridge the gap between MIND/BODY interactions and to develop a novel portable device to monitor the biomolecules involved in these interactions.
MindGAP looks for sensitive health indicators among exosomes that circulated throughout the body and that may change under disease/health installation. To this end, the possibility of using MINDFULNESS meditation as a mind-related tool to control the cargo of exosomes is explored. If meditation is successful in changing the behaviour and attitudes of many people, it means that the exosomes cargo may be changed through this process.
The obtained knowledge opens doors to an innovative device that may be used by everyone to understand his/her health status. To this end, MindGAP shall create an innovative and portable device that tracks exosomes.
