How to Improve Mental Health and Brain Performance
A Virtual Conversation with
Dr. Evian Gordon
Thursday, February 24, at 7 PM EST on Zoom
Science Writers in New York is pleased to present Evian Gordan, M.D, Ph.D. (@DrEvianGordon), founder, chairman and chief medical officer at Total Brain, who will discuss ways to improve mental health and performance. The company has developed a mental health monitoring and support platform that has more than one million registered users.
The Total Brain app is a neuroscience-based mental health and brain performance app that allows users to: self-monitor all 12 brain capacities and risks; practice short and long-term self-care; access professional care when needed and measure treatment impact over time. It helps users understand their stress level, risk of mental condition and their impact on one’s brain capacities.
The Total Brain clinical platform includes a clinically validated assessment, mobile app-based self-care tools, and a clinician dashboard. Clinicians incorporating Total Brain into their practice treat various conditions including substance use disorder, behavioral health disorders, traumatic brain injuries, mild cognitive impairment and more. They use data from Total Brain reports in tandem with other tools such as MRIs and EEGs to gain a more complete picture of what is going on in each patient’s brain. These deep insights drive better informed treatment strategies and more personalized patient care.
Total Brain’s platform is used by AARP, the American Heart Association as well as many companies including AETNA, Boeing, IBM, and Kaiser Permanente. The company is also involved in looking for better drugs to treat mental illness. Total Brain’s iSPOT-D is the largest study of its kind in depression. The study has identified objective indicators of treatment response in more than 1,700 depressed individuals using a range of clinical measures, including genetics (850,000 SNPs), a battery of cognitive tests, electroencephalogram (EEG), event-related potentials (ERP), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI), and mainstream clinical assessments. This research study has been published in 55 peer reviewed publications.
