Eisai and Cogstate Product Launches  

NouKNOW® is a consumer-friendly self-assessment of brain performance that couples a brain health score with lifestyle advice for maintaining brain performance. NouKNOW is available in Japan and a global multilingual version known as CogMate™ is currently available in Taiwan and Hong Kong. 

Thousands of NouKNOW assessments have been performed through initial engagements with Japanese municipalities and businesses seeking to offer their employees, residents, and customers easy-to-use digital solutions for understanding their brain health. This model for driving adoption of self-assessment of cognition in the community via business and government channel relationships is one both Cogstate and Eisai are eager to expand and replicate globally. 

Tools to Know Your Brain Health

NouKNOW and CogMate are designed to expand awareness and understanding of the importance of brain health. The tools utilize the Cogstate Brief Battery to deliver an easy-to-understand brain health score coupled with science-based lifestyle advice that encourages individuals to make healthy changes – as research shows that decline in brain health may be mitigated by embracing a healthy lifestyle.

Participants take four card tests on a PC or tablet device

The tests are easy to complete and take only 15 minutes

Measures include psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory

Self-assessments are designed to be done regularly in daily life and during health checkups
