With Thimus, the revolutionary potential of neuroscience has emerged from a laboratory setting to become a part of real life: getting to know the emotions and complex neurophysiological dynamics of particular groups of individuals helps us to better understand their expectations and emotions. That is why we work every day to push scientific research forwards on this issue — Because the complex relationship between brain, culture and behavior cannot be separated.

Our mission statement
Asking the right questions!
We carefully curate the questions we ask in an effort to promote a humanistic approach to technology. We see this deliberacy in our practice of science and use of technology as an advanced method at the service of humankind and our future development.
