HOW IT WORKS

Become a Citizen Scientist 

At Neureka, we think that everyone should be able to participate in science, that’s why we are taking experiments out of the lab, and into your smartphone. The Neureka app containing fun games and questionnaires will shortly be available to download from the Google Play or Apple Store. Download the Neureka app and you can become a “Citizen Scientist” and participate in one of the biggest neuroscience studies of all time! 

Unlock the Science Challenges 

When you enter the app you can take part in different ‘Science Challenges’. Different ‘Science challenges’ contain different combinations of games and questionnaires. Take part in the ‘Risk Factors’ challenge to contribute to the science of early dementia diagnosis or ‘Multi-Mood’ to contribute to the neuroscience of depression. The more science challenges you complete the more achievements you collect and the more you contribute to science

Play our Games for a few minutes a day 

Every minute you spend completing science challenges, playing games and completing questionnaires in the app helps us move the needle forward in the global fight against Dementia and Depression. Join us and make a difference to science and to people’s lives across the world. We can only make a difference with your help!

The  Neureka Project 

OUR STORY

The Neureka project is a research project run by researchers in the Trinity College Dublin Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI). The project will develop a free smartphone app that contains games and questionnaires which smartphone users can download, play and complete on their phone. Data from this smartphone app (from the games and questionnaires) will be sent to the researchers and analyzed to identify cognitive markers that are signs of an individual’s risk of developing Dementia in the future. In the longer term, we hope to use this data to screen for individuals at risk of developing Dementia. 

OUR VISION

Treatments exist that can modestly impact the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) but there are no disease-modifying treatments that can prevent disease onset or slow progression. Our Vision is being able to detect Alzheimer’s disease in at-risk patients and ultimately provide interventions that can slow, if not, completely deter the onset of the disease.

TECHNOLOGY

A smartphone app is a novel tool that can be used for screening for Dementia risk across large samples around the world and be a valuable means of identifying at-risk individuals. Future treatments of Dementia are most likely to be effective if started early but we first have to identify at-risk individuals to deliver these interventions to. The smartphone app will aid in the assessment of Dementia risk at a scale not currently possible using current methods such as brainscans or face-to-face screening. In this way, the smartphone app will help identify at-risk individuals for future treatments and thus contribute to helping to prevent

Dementia
