Research has shown that eye movements offer unique insights into cognitive function, a reflection of how well our brain is working. Tracking the speed, direction and patterns of eye movements is particularly useful for evaluating the health of our memory. Eye tracking assessments are now being used by physicians and scientists to monitor cognitive performance in people of all ages.

At Neurotrack, our neuroscientists, neuropsychologists and engineers have developed the Imprint Memory Assessment based on Dr. Zola's breakthrough research. Taken online, the assessment offers advanced eye tracking technology in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
During the assessment, your computer’s camera (webcam) tracks your eye movements as you respond to a series of images on your screen. From there, Neurotrack’s proprietary computer vision algorithm extracts the pattern of your eye movements and analyzes the data to give you a baseline score of your memory health. Periodic follow-up assessments help you track any changes that occur 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.
Control group vs. 2 year 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.
