The HeartRater Story

HeartRater develop and deliver evidence- based tools to tune brain with heart/body to allow practically anyone to be better at practically anything.

                                                              is the Foundation Chair in Psychiatry at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), and co-director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex – the first research centre of its kind. Coming from an academic background in both psychology and physiology, his life’s work has involved studying how our unconscious brains control our bodies’ responses, and conversely, how physical changes in our bodies shape our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

                                                          is a researcher at BSMS specialising in interactions between brain and body, and how these interactions can influence our emotions and memories. Her interest in the relationship between the heart and the brain has underpinned the development of HeartRater. She’s shared her interoception expertise in interviews with CNN, the New Scientist and the BBC – memorably testing the instincts of Sir Trevor McDonald in a segment for Tomorrow’s World.
