NeuroCatch Cognitive Brain Function Assessment
Who is it for?
Developed from the science of brain vital signs, the NeuroCatch® Platform is designed to measure cognitive brain function for everyone – across the lifespan and across various situations. Brain health areas of focus include concussion and brain injury, dementia and neurological diseases, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mental health, as well as brain performance and human optimization.
What does it do?
NeuroCatch® conducts a rapid 6-minute scan to measure and report on cognitive brain function. It produces a report immediately after the scan to display information on three different brain responses, also known as event-related potentials (ERPs).
It uses three very light sensors that are held in place on your head by a thin mesh cap. The sensors are located at the front, middle and back of your scalp. The healthcare practitioner will spread a few drops of gel between the sensors and your skin to receive a clear EEG signal from your brain.
Once the cap is in place, you will be given a set of earphones, with earbuds, to place in your ears. After you receive instructions on staying alert and relaxed, the audio sequence will start and play a variety of tones and word pairs for 6 minutes.
During this time, NeuroCatch® records how fast your brain is reacting to these sounds as well as how strongly your brain responds. After the scan is complete, your healthcare practitioner will review the results in the report with you.
