Company name: Brain Resource.
Company description (in their own words, in their own website): “Brain Resource brings new insights and new efficiencies to managing brain health. Brain Resource has established the first and largest international human brain database to make sense of the brain’s complexities and provide a coherent model for measuring brain health. Healthcare stakeholders need timely, evidence-based data and reliable benchmarks in order to improve the way decisions are made in brain health. We empower clinicians, employers, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, health plans and individuals with access to personalized, validated and actionable data. Our cross-disciplinary and multi-dimensional approach has produced a standard for testing and analyzing how the brain works across the lifespan and under varying conditions, influences and compounds. Users tap into this resource by completing assessments which capture the brain basis of an individual’s emotion, thinking and feeling processes, and how they regulate them compared to their peers.”
Main product name/s: MyBrainSolutions – for adults.
Product description (in their own words, in their own website): “MyBrainSolutions is powered by Brain Resource and its strong scientific base in Integrative Neuroscience. MyBrainSolutions is unique in its 360-degree integration of scientific evidence with ongoing personalized brain insights and training solutions. The evidence base brings together scientific theory, objective assessments and a database for ongoing insights. The suite of training programs is designed to optimize integrative training across Emotion, Thinking, Feeling and Self Regulation processes. This approach uses the latest knowledge about the interconnected nature of the brain. Most other brain training sites focus on only one area – such as Thinking processes of memory. An integrative platform has been used to identify the best way to measure your brain, and use it to optimize yourself. Integrative Neuroscience has been established as the way forward in personalizing brain health and its applications. This approach draws on the move to large-scale science for brain health . Using ‘Integrative Neuroscience’ we have brought together essential insights across the spectrum of brain health disciplines – spanning psychology, psychiatry, neurology and neuroscience. From these insights, we identify four essential processes for brain health; Emotion, Thinking, Feeling and Self Regulation.”
