Autism, GABA and the Brain Gauge: the history of our scientific efforts in the field.



The Brain Gauge methods predicted GABA deficits in autism that were later validated with medical imaging

After having many discussions with people who are interested in the Brain Gauge technology, I became increasingly aware that a vast majority assume the Brain Gauge was designed exclusively for assessing traumatic brain injury (TBI) abd concussion. Although we have received support from the Office of Naval Research for the development of the Brain Gauge as a standardized concussion tool, the development of the device began as a means for studying alterations in brain

Telemedicine and Remote Testing with Brain Gauge



A new way to monitor patient’s health from afar.

Considering all the inconveniences of going to a doctor’s office, it’s no wonder the use of telemedicine (the remote delivery of health care services using technology) is growing rapidly. Between the hassles of making an appointment, office wait times, and being around sick patients, why go to the office if you have the option to see the doctor from the comfort of your own home?

Smart phones, video conferencing, and online platforms increase the accessibility of health care

Is Sleep a Form of Biohacking?



Sleep deprivation will negatively impact your Brain Gauge scores; optimal sleep will optimize your brain health.
One of the most simple and straightforward Brain Gauge tests is the simple reaction time test (RT). This type of test is commonly used as a good “first glance” at overall brain health. In this test, a delayed response time can be a strong indication that there is something unusual happening with your brain. However, this metric is very sensitive to a number of lifestyle factors (such as lack of sleep, medication side effects,
