Who we are
Founded in 2015 by neuroscientists and technologists Dr. David Eagleman and Dr. Yael Katz, BrainCheck helps reduce the human and economic toll of cognitive impairment and dementia through its interactive cognitive assessment and cognitive care planning technology.
Hundreds of hospitals and clinical practices use the BrainCheck platform, to help thousands of patients live better and safer lives at home, to decrease caregiver frustration, and to save health systems trillions of dollars.
We envision a world where everyone has access to insight about their cognitive function. Where cognitive changes are detected early, and where diseases like Alzheimer’s and other dementias are preventable and treatable. A world without cognitive impairment.
