Dr. John Krakauer is the Chief Medical Advisor at MindMaze, pioneers in digital neurotherapeutics focused on brain health and recovery from neurological diseases and injuries.

John explains, "What we really mean by digital neurotherapeutics is the belief that one can actually administer a medicine in a way that's different from pharmacology, different from surgery or devices. But in fact, consider software as a pill so that you can actually have a software experience, an immersive gaming-like experience that can actually have an effect on a disease, in particular, neurological conditions in a way comparable to other medical approaches."

"So MindMaze really would like to create immersive gaming software that allows the nervous system after injury or disease to undergo such change. We're different, I think, in so much that we realize that you can't just be an app on a phone or a tablet. You have to be in an immersive full-body experience that combines exercise, cognitive challenge, and skill learning. And so, we're creating that kind of digital therapeutic experience."
