What does an annual brain health check-up look like?
There's no need for electrodes or other expensive equipment at a brain health check-up. In this video, HealthMaker Alvaro Fernandez describes how such an assessment would work.
And remember a lady from Kaiser Permanente close to throwing a shoe at me because her assumption was very
high-end brain scans. I don't think it's going to be that way. I think it's going to be basically computerized. [MUSIC PLAYING]
There are different ways to answer that. So some people like high tech. They are thinking, oh, General Electric is going to develop
this super high-end brain scan that will-- and I don't think that's the way. I mean, because that's not scalable.
That's extremely expensive. I mentioned this idea in health forums. And I remember a lady from Kaiser Permanente
close to throwing a shoe at me because her assumption was very high-end brain scans. I don't think it's going to be that way.
I think it's going to be basically computerized, maybe 30 to 40 minutes, fully online assessment of a variety of cognitive,
emotional, and behavioral dimensions that are enough to predict what's getting
m what is getting worse. So basically, it's neuropsychology. But instead of going to a neuropsychologist and have to spend two days doing one-on-one therapies,
most of it can be automated. And the interesting thing is that those assessments, many of them already today are automated.
And that's what pharmaceutical trials. When they have to prove anything on thousands of individuals, they already have the computerized assessments.
But those are not yet offered to the mainstream public. So it's a matter of offering what already exists
in a way that is relevant and that people understand what's the value of that assessment. So I think it's going to be extremely
inexpensive, online-based, and ubiquitous, and everywhere. [AUDIO LOGO]
