Do we now have the tools to fight the effects of aging, dementia, or even Alzheimer's? In this episode we discuss Cognitive Health with Dr. Raj Kumar, Chief Medical Officer of MyCognition.

Cognition, defined briefly as the ability to think, learn, respond, and remember, is a crucial issue in healthcare today because of an increasingly aging population and diagnoses of dementia, attention disorders, learning disorders, and anxiety at all-time highs.

What is your CQ? MyCQ™, short for cognition quotient, is an assessment tool developed by UK company MyCognition for measuring cognitive functioning. It is the mission of MyCognition to measure and improve cognitive health.  In addition to its MyCQ assessment tool, MyCognition brings a range of training products that have been specifically developed to enhance the thinking, learning and memory processes.  Learn about how this exciting technology is showing cognitive health improvements in schools, workplaces, and the healthcare sector.
