Over the last decade, there have been many significant advancements within the healthcare industry. Today, we have the ability to produce 3D-printed prosthetic limbs, use artificial intelligence to improve health data, and get personalized healthcare via smartphones and sensors, with many more solutions being created daily.
Yet, even with the onslaught of innovative technologies within healthcare, we know very little about how the brain functions. Today, cognitive degenerative conditions—like Alzheimer's and other sources of dementia—continue to affect millions of people globally, with no real cure in sight. At the same time, awareness around brain health is growing globally among all age groups—and while brain health deterioration is top of mind, so too is the desire for self-optimization in order to maximize one's quality of life.
Since 2009, hundreds of thousands of people have used Cambridge Brain Sciences to gain a deeper understanding of their brain health, while contributing to large-scale scientific studies that have advanced our knowledge of the brain. To date our tasks have been completed more than 8 million times (and counting), and have been used in 300+ peer-reviewed academic papers. As the leading online platform for cognitive assessment with one of the largest secure cognitive databases, we are in the unique position to push the boundaries of our understanding of the brain.
Today, Cambridge Brain Sciences consists of both scientists and technology enthusiasts working together to provide healthcare practitioners and researchers with scientifically-validated, yet easy-to-use cognitive assessment products through CBS Health and CBS Research.
