About the NeuroCatch™ Platform

The NeuroCatch™ Platform is an all-in-one hardware and software assessment tool used to capture and translate electrical brain wave activity into a standardized clinical report.

Specifically, the NeuroCatch™ Platform is intended for the elicitation, acquisition, analysis, storage, reporting and management of event related potential (ERP) information derived from EEG (electroencephalogram) signals. The NeuroCatch™ Platform generates a summary report of the ABCs of electrical activity in the brain: Auditory sensation, Basic attention, and Cognitive processing.

The NeuroCatch™ Platform is an objective, neuro-physiological assessment tool used to manage and provide data-driven insights.

Progression from EEGS to the NeuroCatch™ Platform

EEG

  • Objective
  • Neuro-physiological cognitive assessment

ERP

  • Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) are derived from EEG recordings[1]
  • ERPs are sensitive to variables related to information processing[2]

ABC

  • A = Auditory Sensation (N100)
  • B = Basic Attention (P300)
  • C = Cognitive Processing (N400)

NeuroCatch™ Platform

  • Software + hardware
  • Elicits, acquires, analyzes, stores, reports, and manages ERP info for ABC
  • Accessible to clinics

Comprehensive assessments using innovative neurotechnology

The NeuroCatch™ Platform provides:

  • A scientific, evidence-based approach for the clinical utilization of ERPs
  • An objective, neuro-physiological assessment using ABC (Auditory Sensation [N100]; Basic Attention [P300]; and Cognitive Processing [N400])

The Science

Q: What is the science behind the NeuroCatch™ Platform?

A: Spearheaded by leading Simon Fraser University neuroscientist Dr. Ryan D’Arcy, NeuroCatch Inc. created the NeuroCatch™ Platform as a scientific, evidence-based approach that triggers, captures and rapidly translates EEG signals into a standardized clinical report. Specifically, it provides an objective, neurophysiological assessment using three key ERPs (event-related potentials), known as ABC (Auditory Sensation [N100]; Basic Attention [P300]; and Cognitive Processing [N400]).

Q: What are the challenges of traditional brain assessments?

A: Traditional brain assessments include subjective behavioural approaches that may include confounding factors such as motoric and communicative limitations.[3,4
