Research Studies

The Creyos (formerly Cambridge Brain Sciences) tasks have been used in over 300 peer-reviewed studies. Many have been published in high-profile journals, like Nature and Neuron.

Validated by hundreds of peer-reviewed publications

In our groundbreaking study, published in Neuron, almost 45,000 people took the Creyos tasks, leading to an important discovery: intelligence is not just one thing. There are at least three independent intellectual domains: reasoning, short-term memory, and verbal ability. What’s more, each domain has its own brain network behind it.

We also used the Creyos tasks to examine the effects of commercial training on cognitive performance. It would be great if playing tasks could increase the overall performance of your cognition, but it turns out to be more complicated than that. For healthy people, practice usually only makes them better at what they practice. That's what results published in Nature revealed: doing tasks similar to current commercial brain training had no overall boost to cognition.

Many other studies have used Creyos cognitive tasks to evaluate cognitive function in a wide variety of situations—from development and aging, mental and physical illness, environmental conditions, drugs, music, and hundreds more. Check them out below.

Are you a researcher?

Creyos Research makes it possible to collect scientifically-valid brain function data at scale. Creyos Research provides flexibility and efficiency, such that our cognitive testing can be used alone or alongside other data collection tools, whether it’s in person or online, 10 participants or 10,000.
