About BrainFutures

BrainFutures is increasing the range of therapeutic options available to the public by bridging the gap between research, innovation and practice and by providing rigorous and unbiased information about advances in brain health and cutting-edge care that is transforming patient outcomes.

What we do

The entire spectrum of brain health and fitness, from treatment of illness to optimization of well being, is emerging as a transformational opportunity to enhance quality of life. There is a pronounced gap between the growth of a compelling research and evidence base, and the awareness and action on the part of health and human service providers, educators, payers, employers and the general public.

Established in 2016, BrainFutures is a non-profit organization providing a "one-stop-shop" for rigorous and unbiased information about advances in brain health resulting from breakthroughs in understanding neuroplasticity of the brain. We focus on two key areas:

Advances in treatments and programs that produce superior results combining digital therapies and new medications with self-care strategies including mindfulness, exercise, diet and fitness.

Digital and self-care strategies involving brain fitness that strengthen neural networks, and improve brain health and functioning.


Topics ranging from evidence-based treatment technologies to brain fitness strategies


Industry leaders sharing research-to- practice technologies
