Listen to us on the Concussion Talk Podcast!

Co-Founder Caitlin Baltzer and CSO Dr. Benjamin Dunkley sat down with host Nick Mercer to discuss the power of MEG technology, research on the impact of concussion in sport, and what the future holds for MYndspan.

MYndspan launches solution to measure and assess brain health

MYndspan launches the world’s first consumer brain imaging service to objectively measure and assess brain health, using brain connectivity. MYndspan’s brain scanning technology identifies concussion, helping the 3.8 million athletes that experience sports-related concussion annually. The commercial service launches at Aston University’s Institute of Health & Neurodevelopment with neuroscientist and author Dr. Dean Burnett, and Vicky Macqueen, former England Rugby player and CEO of Didi Rugby.

A Q&A with MYndspan’s CSO, Dr. Ben Dunkley

We are delighted to appoint Dr. Ben Dunkley as our Chief Scientific Officer (CSO). Previously sitting on our Scientific Advisory Board, Ben is an internationally recognised neuroscientist leading a cutting-edge research program to define the ‘invisible injuries’ of the brain, such as concussion and PTSD.

In this Q&A Ben shares his insights into brain health, and delves into the science and motivations behind MYndspan’s brain technology.

MYndspan Advisor Dr. Karolina Urban talks to TSN’s She’s Got Game about the concussion gender data gap

MYndspan’s Advisor and former professional hockey player Dr. Karolina Urban talks to TSN’s Michaela Schreiter and Robyn Flynn about how her own sports concussion led her to become a neuroscientist. Talking to She’s Got Game she speaks about partnering with MYndspan to build a concussion tool that looks at athletes actual brain activity as a measure of injury to determine when it’s safe to return to play with the aim to help athletes avoid going back to play prior to fully healing – something she has first hand experience with.

MYndspan Advisors Dr. Jing Zhang and Dr. Benjamin Dunkley lead landmark study showing PTSD and Concussion can be reliably differentiated by brain activity alone

Did you know that PTSD and Concussion have substantially overlapping symptoms? It makes diagnosis very difficult, yet it’s important because they have such different treatment pathways. However, while the symptoms overlap, the underlying brain activity is different between the two injuries, and MYndspan’s very own Dr.’s Jing Zhang, PhD and Benjamin Dunkley have written the first study to employ MEG (a brain scanner that maps brain activity with millimetre and millisecond accuracy) to reliably differentiate the two! This demonstrates the potential of using ‘invisible’ Brain Activity to understand and differentiate these two debilitating conditions.

MYndspan and SickKids Hospital partner to help close the concussion gender data gap

Co-Founder Caitlin Baltzer, and Advisory Board Members Dr.’s Ben Dunkley and Karolina Urban talk to CTV News about MYndspan’s concussion study (formerly RENITA Medical) which aims to close the gender data gap and build a concussion tool that takes biological sex into account.

MYndspan’s Advisor Dr. Benjamin Dunkley contributes to historic review of concussion studies

MYndspan’s own Dr. Benjamin Dunkley contributed to the very first systematic review of MEG studies focused on adult concussion. The study by Christopher Allen et al. identifies biomarkers with the potential to diagnose concussion and capability to predict and monitor Concussion Recovery over time. The study concludes that verifying MEG’s potential as a concussion biomarker would help meet an urgent clinical need within civilian, sports and military medicine – something MYndspan is passionate about helping to facilitate.
