NeuroCatch Inc. is a neuro-health technology company focused on translating neuroscience research innovations into real-world medical devices and consumer products. Located within the Health and Technology District in Surrey, British Columbia, NeuroCatch Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of HealthTech Connex Inc.
NeuroCatch’s first medical device, the NeuroCatch® Platform, is an objective, rapid neuro-physiological brain function assessment system that is licensed by Health Canada as a Class II medical device. It is easy to use, cost-effective and readily accessible to healthcare practitioners, researchers and performance specialists in Canada, the US and beyond.
A message from our Host, Wilf Nelson – So this show has a sponsor, but why? Why did I choose to partner up with NeuroCatch Inc rather than talking about windows and doors or a new energy drink which are granted parts of my daily life too? Well, NeuroCatch does something I really care about. I’m going to repeat that, I really care about this. They took the research from academic papers that only scientists are trained to read and turned that into a product, something that makes mine and your lives better. Quick spoiler alert, the brain is really complicated and that means knowing if a brain is healthy or not is hard. NeuroCatch offers a way to measure brain health like we can measure a pulse or blood pressure, it gives researchers, health care professionals and businesses access to something we couldn’t do before, know how your brain is doing in just a couple of minutes. That alone would have got me to sign up but the fact it was done with the intention of bringing inaccessible academic knowledge into a real-life product is what science should do. I chose to make this show, to spend my time bringing science you can only understand after eight years in school to an international audience, to translate it and show its beauty frankly. The similarities are obvious.
So yeah, that is why I partnered with NeuroCatch Inc. If you want to know more please check out the links to their page or get in contact with the show and we can just talk science because that is what I do and I love it.

Start-Up Games (March 2020)
Yesterday I was at the Birmingham Start-Up Connections event showing off the second season of WCNeuro. I was back with my unreasonably hard game and seeing who could tell myth from fact to win some limited edition WCNeuro t-shirt.— WaterCoolerNeuroscience (@WCNeuro) March 12, 2020
Last night the podcast was a winner at the Start-Up Games and we won £500. That will be getting used to improve production quality of the podcast and start the first marketing campaign. Many thanks for all the help that got us this far — WaterCoolerNeuroscience (@WCNeuro) March 12, 2020
CHBH Launch Event (Sept 2019)
Congratulations to Wilf Nelson on winning the CHBH Public Engagement Prize 2019 which involved a £100 Amazon voucher and an additional £100 towards his next Public Engagement Initiatives. Well done Wilf! There will be another opportunity to submit for the prize in 2020! pic.twitter.com/2vHuZf1dTL— The Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH) (@TheCHBH) December 16, 2019
Heart of Brum (Sept 2019)
Here at the #heartofbrum with @UOBengage for our stall promoting @WCNeuro. Come by and try our games, win t shirts (thanks to @TheCHBH, for sponsorsing Rhodes), badges and sweets from 12-4 #podcast #science #psychology #phdlife pic.twitter.com/CBGmc7uZYi— WaterCoolerNeuroscience (@WCNeuro) September 26, 2019
The podcast will be at the Lapworth Lates event today at 6pm at @LapworthMuseum where we will be talking about how the complexity and relationships in the brain generate myths. These myths get exacerbated as our social networks expand. Can you figure out what is truth and myth?— WaterCoolerNeuroscience (@WCNeuro) February 13, 2020
