Ariel Garten

Co-Founder and Chief Evangelism Officer, Interaxon

Ariel Garten is the Co-Founder of InteraXon, makers of Muse: the brain sensing headband. Muse is the award-winning headband that helps make meditation easier. Ariel studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto and worked in labs at Toronto’s Krembil Neuroscience Centre researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. No mere science nerd, Ariel is a fashion designer whose clothing opened Toronto Fashion Week, and has had her work displayed at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Her uncommon combination of science and art is integral to the design of Muse and to InteraXon’s unique approach to brain sensing technology. Merging technology, neuroscience and design, Ariel and her team are regularly lauded in global media: CNN, Popular Science, CNET, CNBC, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal and more, for creating what the Huffington Post calls "the beautiful headband that will make you smarter". After launching in mid-2014, tens of thousands of people are now using Muse to do more with their minds.
