- Groundbreaking results published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journal
- Important academic validation of underlying science behind Cognetivity's cognitive assessment platform
VANCOUVER, Jan. 31, 2019 /CNW/ - Cognetivity Neurosciences Ltd. (the "Company" or "Cognetivity") (CSE: CGN; FWB: 1UB; OTCQB: CGNSF) today announced that results from its research and development program into its Integrated Cognitive Assessment (ICA) platform have been published in a leading peer-reviewed academic journal, Scientific Reports, from the publishers of Nature.
The paper describes results from key studies validating the effectiveness of the ICA's unique approach of using a rapid visual categorization task for detecting changes in cognitive performance and its potential for use in early detection of mental disorders, including dementia, and micro-monitoring of cognitive performance.
Cognetivity's CEO and Director, Dr. Sina Habibi, commented: "We are delighted to announce this first peer-reviewed publication of our groundbreaking research in the area of cognitive performance measuring. Now that we have been granted patents covering key areas of our technology, we have been able to release details of our research and development program and some of the excellent results which validate our approach for our sensitive, repeatable and fully scalable solution to the early detection of conditions that involve cognitive impairment. It is our aim to make our technology available to help as many people as possible, whether through its use in clinical environments for the crucial early detection of conditions such as dementia, or through allowing people to measure their ongoing cognitive performance in a meaningful way as part of their overall health monitoring activities."
