State of the Science

BrainCheck takes well-established neurocognitive tests and turns them into mobile interactive games, offering a snapshot of your cognitive health anytime, anywhere.

BrainCheck was developed at the Eagleman Neuroscience Laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine. Recognized by the scientific community for his groundbreaking work on neurocognitive assessment, Dr. David Eagleman has authored over a hundred peer-reviewed articles and lectured at universities and hospitals nationwide. He brings neuroscience to millions through his New York Times best-selling books and media appearances, including NPR, TED, The Colbert Report, and the PBS series The Brain.

BrainCheck is currently used as a front-line tool at hospitals and clinics in the world’s largest medical center.

What People Are Saying

Dr. Robert Robbins
CEO, Texas Medical Center
Maybe, one day, we’ll all have to check in with an iPad and see if we’re fit to perform surgery or operate heavy machinery. On the sports field, BrainCheck has a very clever way to assess brain functioning.
Ultimate Frisbee Athlete
I’m one of those people who’s always checking on my health, so for something like this, I definitely would have been checking it constantly. It would have at least given me peace of mind to see some kind of progress after my concussion. I wasn’t going to the doctor regularly, so having some sort of information always makes you feel better.
Leslie Schover, Ph.D.
Clinical Psychologist at MD Anderson
Having something like BrainCheck where you can test your abilities and see how you compare to other people your age is a great thing. It’s a little scary, but if I had a fall or I had some kind of illness where I was worried that it could affect my ability to do my job, it would be great to have the baseline and then see if I were becoming impaired.
Jeff Hancock
CEO, Rockport Contracting
It’s all about safety. BrainCheck lets me track my employees performance over time, so if we see a downward trend in an individual’s scores, we can intervene before an accident occurs.

Help us push the science forward

Concussion is still poorly understood. More research is urgently needed in this area. In fact, “concussion” is a term that may describe multiple conditions, which may explain the wide variance in symptoms and recovery paths among individuals. Only about 10% of concussions are currently detected with imaging technologies, with 90% diagnosed via a patient’s symptoms, history, and description of events. By joining the BrainCheck community, you can help us leverage technology to make progress toward developing stronger, individualized treatments.
