This week, President Sara Diamond moderated a panel discussion on gamification at BIO 2017, the world’s largest gathering of the biotechnology industry. Titled Game Theory and the Brain – How Gamification is Leading to Better Brain Heath and Outcomes, the panel discussion explored the relationship between internet quizzes and video games with better brain and mental health. Attendees learned about new gamification approaches in the guise of an internet quiz, which can identify markers for brain health and help lead to earlier assessment, diagnosis and treatment for patients.

Panel members included Michael Meagher, president and CEO, Cogniciti; Patrick Dwivedi, chief executive officer, Ehave, Inc. and Dr. Graeme Moffat, vice-president, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, InteraXon Inc. The speakers led an engaging and educational panel discussion on brain research, commercialization and care while confirming Ontario’s role as a world leader in these categories.
