Concussion Study Update


alt Summary of previous report: Our brain health assessment system is composed of a test device (the Brain Gauge; above) and a number of tests that task different mechanisms of information processing (e.g., lateral inhibition, adaptation, feed-forward inhibition, neuron-glial interactions). The results of these tests are then used to generate an overall performance score (or cortical metric). Sports concussion studies using this technology and protocols have established efficacy for detecting mTBI and tracking its recovery, demonstrating a 99% confidence level (p<0.01) for differentiating individuals

Large Changes to ProTools coming this week


Major changes to those of you using our ProTools software will be rolling out this week. The software you know and love is largely staying the same, but we have tweaked the way data sessions are viewed with a more efficient and intuitive data timeline. We are dedicated to providing updates to improve our system, and we think you'll find that this new version of ProTools is much faster and more intuitive.

Promising Results with Pre-Parkinson's


Welcome to Cortical Metrics Insights! This is our long overdue third issue.

We’ve been busy getting ready to launch the Brain Gauge, but meanwhile, there's lots of great news from our users of the Brain Gauge Pro to report on……we’ll do our best to catch up by having several newsletters in the next few weeks.
Last issue, we highlighted Timing Perception and told you which scientific findings related to it. In brief, a simple measure of timing perception (or duration discrimination) is obtained

Improvements in Brain Gauge performance parallel mTBI recovery


Dr. George Roth has consistently provided reports that demonstrate patient improvement in corticalmetrics post-treatment.



A 40 year old patient suffered direct left parietal head trauma from a motor vehicle collision, and 8 months post-trauma, the patient continued to suffer from cognitive, visual, and vestibular disorders. Patient was also sensitive to light and noise, reported neck pain, and was unable to continue in her post-graduate program. The patient had sustained one previous concussion in 2005.

Cortical Metrics tests showed diminished function in multiple

Case study: NUCCA treatment leads to neurological improvement



A 54 year old male was tested before and after a NUCCA correction for his C-1 vertebra being out of alignment.

Brain Gauge tests were collected before correction and 4 hours after correction. Note significant across the board improvement in all metrics, which matched the patient’s qualitative self-report on the outcome.

The next issue of corticalmetrics insights will feature a mTBI case contributed by Dr. George Roth.

Acknowledgment: Thanks to Dr. Kerry Johnson for his contribution.
