Progression from EEGs to the NeuroCatch™ Platform

EEG

  • Objective
  • Neuro-physiological cognitive assessment

ERP

  • Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) are derived from EEG recordings[1]
  • ERPs are sensitive to variables related to information processing[2]

ABC

  • A = Auditory Sensation (N100)
  • B = Basic Attention (P300)
  • C = Cognitive Processing (N400)

NeuroCatch™ Platform

  • Software + hardware
  • Elicits, acquires, analyzes, stores, reports, and manages ERP info for ABC
  • Accessible to clinics

The NeuroCatch™ Platform provides:

A scientific, evidence-based approach for the clinical utilization of ERPs

An objective, neuro-physiological assessment using ABC (Auditory Sensation [N100]; Basic Attention [P300]; and Cognitive Processing [N400])

Evolution of the Brain Vital Signs™ Framework

Spearheaded by leading Simon Fraser University neuroscientist Dr. Ryan D’Arcy, HealthTech Connex is working to deliver Brain Vital Signs™, a new framework for analyzing complex brainwave data that will provide simple, practical and objective physiological markers of brain function.
