We seek to use these insights to provide earlier detection and more effective treatment for patients affected by neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, PTSD, dementia and depression. To bring our insights from the lab to the clinic, our team has developed a low-cost multimodal device and method for accurately diagnosing and quantitatively tracking the progression of (formerly undiagnosable) neurological states and disorders. Our system is powered by a theoretical framework developed for processing multivariate data, specifically for the purposes of translating neurological signaling to logical data structures. This work, the Functional Code Unit (FCU) and the Brain Code (BC), was developed by Dr Newton Howard and has shown to be remarkably effective at discovering biomarkers for various diseases. The framework is also effective at mapping neural activity and may hold the key to extracting sentiment, intent and even language, directly from neurological signals.
