Time for a new edition of SharpBrains’ e-newsletter. This time we focus on how much the brain health and behavioral health fields are changing, as they upgrade traditional toolkits with digital platforms to better monitor, assess and enhance cognition. Often driven by a growing consumer demand for improved brain fitness, as you can see in this 3-minute clip (opens YouTube video).
We are proud to report that our latest market report is proving to be valuable to a range of executives and innovators working along those lines, as you can read here.
Have a great month of April!
