Cognitive Research HEADING_TITLE

President George Bush designated the 1990s as the Decade of the Brain;"to enhance public awareness of the benefits to be derived from brain research”.  This dramatically stimulated research in a wide range of neuroscience-related fields including:

Underlying these scientific disciplines is an effort to understand how the brain processes information.  This research into human cognition utilizes a broad range of technologies to try to measure various brain processes as a function of cognitive activity.  The most direct way to measure many fundamental cognitive processes is to record the brain’s electrical activity in response various external stimuli.  This is where Neuronetrix’s COGNISION™ System can play a strategically important role.

The COGNISION™ System facilitates complex QEEG and ERP testing to investigate many fundamental brain processes.  COGNISION™ has many unique advantages versus other systems including:

  • High-performance active electrodes
  • Wireless operation
  • Can be used in any office setting
  • Unparalleled ease-of-use
  • Low cost
  • Sophisticated protocol development application
  • Auditory, visual, and mixed stimulus presentation
  • Online database to store protocols, stimuli, and subject data
  • Integrated machine-learning classification application

The COGNISION™ advantages are particularly useful for use in large, multi-center trials involving many subjects where multiple systems would need to be employed.
