The American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN) launches Disruptive Technology Initiative to shape the future of Neuropsychology

aacn_box-logoTech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs are cre­at­ing enor­mous poten­tial for the future of neu­ropsy­chol­o­gy and trig­ger­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to cre­ate nov­el strate­gies for both assess­ment and inter­ven­tion. Cog­ni­tive fit­ness is grow­ing into a mul­ti-bil­lion dol­lar indus­try. Tar­gets have shift­ed from diag­no­sis and treat­ment of estab­lished dis­eases to ear­ly inter­ven­tion, pre­ven­tion, and cog­ni­tive enhance­ment. Ubiq­ui­tous mobile devices enable both active and pas­sive sens­ing of our cog­ni­tive and emo­tion­al states, and “the Inter­net of things” promis­es to offer both assess­ment and inter­ven­tion strate­gies pre­vi­ous­ly unimag­in­able (“…my car/clock/refrigerator does that…”). In keep­ing with this trend, the AACN seeks to stim­u­late inno­va­tions capa­ble of chang­ing the land­scape of clin­i­cal neu­ropsy­chol­o­gy in fun­da­men­tal ways…The pitch ideas need to focus on neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal assess­ment and/or inter­ven­tion, pre­ven­tion, or improve­ment of cog­ni­tive func­tions, and be acces­si­ble to broad pop­u­la­tions across the Unit­ed States or the World.
