Yesterday, science writer David Ewing Duncan interviewed Tommy Sagroun (CEO of CogniFit), Isabela Granic (CEO of PlayNice Institute), Ariel Garten (CEO of InterAxon) and Nicole Lazzaro (CEO of XEO Design) during the panel “Improving the Mind – Wellness NeuroGaming” at the NeuroGaming 2014 Expo.

Complete consumer centric products that capture the interest of the broad public will be critical for wellness neurogaming products to have an impact they are looking to have on healthy behavior. Panelists shared their vision on how neurogaming technologies will be used to create compelling, immersive experiences to capture mind and marketshare.

Tommy Sagroun explained that consumers are much more familiar with brain training. So it made perfect sense for professionals in the healthcare and educational industries to use professional cognitive tools to assess, train, and track the cognition of their patients or students.
