Company History

Neuroscience researchers throughout the world have used Event Related Potential (ERP) and quantitative EEG (qEEG) methods to evaluate a wide range of cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and concussion/mTBI. In recent years, technological advances have greatly enhanced the performance of these systems.

With the idea to harness the performance capabilities of this technology and automate the software to make it accessible for private medical practices, Dr. John Barker and KC Fadem founded COGNISION®, formerly known as Neuronetrix. Barker and Fadem redesigned the technology from the ground up to focus on ease of use, large-scale application and high performance.

Today, COGNISION is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky with reps in San Jose, California; Austin, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Indianapolis, Indiana. Our experienced management team, strong board of directors and scientific advisory board drives our continued growth into new areas of cognitive detection, helping shape the future of medical technology.

"Where others dumbed down the performance by removing important steps, instead of eliminating any of the 10,000 steps—we automated them."

KC Fadem, COGNISION Founder

Utilized by universities, major healthcare systems, private practices, hospitals, health systems and global clinical trials.
