The measurement of eye movements offers unique insights into the brain and critical aspects of cognition. Assessments of speed, direction and larger patterns of eye movements serve as markers of memory performance. For this reason, eye tracking is being used by physicians and scientists to measure cognitive performance and monitor cognition in people at risk for cognitive decline.

At Neurotrack, our neuroscientists, neuropsychologists and engineers have validated and adapted Dr. Zola’s breakthrough research into a 5-minute online assessment. We use your computer’s camera (webcam) to track your eye movements and viewing patterns while you watch a series of images on your computer screen. We analyze that data to give you a baseline score of your brain health and then, through future tests, help you track it over time.
Research shows that lifestyle has a lot to do with brain health. The FINGER study (The Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability) is a multi-year study that found that among 1,200 adults at risk for cognitive decline, those who engaged in lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise and cognitive training significantly improved or maintained their cognition. This lifestyle program provides the foundation for our Memory Health Program.

Working with Dr. Kivipelto, Neurotrack is developing a program that focuses on the five key areas scientifically proven to improve brain health: exercise, diet, sleep, stress, and cognitive training. We’ll help you learn how to integrate habits into your life and track how these behaviors affect the health of your memory.
The science behind memory health is constantly evolving. We partner with leading institutions to help advance today’s knowledge of how memory loss can be measured and prevented.
The science of brain health and memory loss continues to develop. Until recently, the only memory tests offered were conducted in laboratories or by specialists in select clinicians' offices.
At Neurotrack, we’re able to give people anywhere in the world access to tools and technology that provide deep insight and information about their brain and memory health. This has never before been possible. And, as the science advances and our technology continues to improve, we’ll continue to make those insights accessible to you.
