How we started


BrainCheck is the result of 20 years of research conducted at the Eagleman Laboratory for Perception and Action at Baylor College of Medicine.

For decades, doctors and scientists have relied on pencil-and-paper tests to measure brain health. But modern technology enables us to bring these tests into the 21st century and offer people everywhere easy, affordable access to their brain health from wherever they are.

Today, we provide cognitive health solutions to over 100 healthcare and athletic organizations around the country. And more than 40,000 individuals are using BrainCheck to assess and monitor their cognitive health and share changes with clinicians.

BrainCheck’s mission is to help physicians deliver the highest quality, person-centered cognitive care, and to help people of all ages understand what’s happening in their brain.

We live in the world's largest medical center

Our story


For decades, doctors and scientists have relied on pencil-and-paper tests to measure brain health. But modern technology enables us to bring these tests into the 21st century and offer people everywhere easy, affordable access to their brain health from wherever they are.

Backed by 20 years of research conducted at the Eagleman Neuroscience Laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine, BrainCheck empowers everyday people with data and empowers scientists to innovate.

BrainCheck’s goal is to help people of all ages understand what’s happening in their brain, while improving concussion and dementia care along the way.

With our easy-to-use interactive tests, users can assess their brain health on an iPad, iPhone or browser and receive results on the spot, both compared to their individual baseline and to the population average. In 10 minutes, we test multiple cognitive domains, and results can be shared (in a HIPAA-compliant manner) among a person’s care team — individuals, family members, caregivers, and clinicians.

All too often, people don’t realize that they have cognitive impairment until it has progressed to the advanced stages. We get everyone on the same page and facilitate collaboration on brain health so that people can be aware of changes early and track progress over time.
