New technology that improves your brain
Date:4/23/2013

TAMPA, Fla. (April 23, 2013) Improving brain function is one of the topics explored in the latest issue of Technology and Innovation Proceedings of the National Academy of Inventors (https://www.cognizantcommunication.com/component/content/article/636). The special issue, which also contains studies on medical technology and health care delivery, contains two articles on brain health: one on preventing and curing mental illness and one on improving the brain through training.

The BRAINnet Foundation uses technology to prevent and cure mental illnesses

The non-profit BRAINnet Foundation is using standardized protocols and assessment platforms to pool data across mental disorders, sites and studies, says Stephen H. Koslow of the San Francisco-based BRAINnet Foundation.

"This is accomplished through open electronic sharing and continued expansion of a global database of human brain data in health and disease across the lifespan."

According to Koslow, data are available for 5,092 healthy subjects and from those with specific disorders. Studies using their data have shown how the standardized approach is a quality and efficient way to take the lead in initiatives being forged in psychiatry and neuroscience, an example being the National Institutes of Mental Health's Research Domain Criteria, with which BRAINnet's data domains align.

"BRAINnet provides scientists with access to thousands of data sets obtained and quantified using standardized protocols that span multiple modes of measurement," explains Koslow. "These data sets also include healthy subjects as well as a continually growing spectrum of multiple specialized patient cohorts. The BRAINn
