The BrainSpan test builds its patient analysis through use of a blood sample as well as an online cognitive assessment. The online cognitive assessment is sent out to the patient by email, and can be done at home using a touch screen. It takes about 15-30 minutes to complete, and is best done in a calm space where there will be no interruptions. BrainSpan’s blood sample does not necessitate a blood draw, instead only requires a finger-prick blood spot sample. The finger-prick can be carried out on one’s own or, if desired, with the help of our mobile phlebotomist. Once received by the lab, the results of the finger-prick blood test are combined with the cognitive portion of the test to assess fatty acid levels, toxicity, and a multitude of brain function analyses, including memory, attention, cognitive flexibility, and processing speed.
