Autism is growing at an alarming rate, around the world, and oftentimes it is identified very late, not measured numerically or reliably, and with few systematic pathways toward self-sufficiency and happiness. Autism is deeply personal and can bring complex social dynamics, isolation, and stress to the whole family. It also represents a vast ocean of partially untapped brain power that can benefit the many and the one. At Brain Power, we believe that we can make a major positive impact by unlocking some of that power, via a unique “wearable classroom”, and we appreciate your support and feedback in helping us reach this goal.
BRAIN POWER, LLC OFFERS A SUITE OF TOOLS TO HELP CHILDREN AND ADULTS ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM TEACH THEMSELVES LIFE SKILLS CRUCIAL TO SELF SUFFICIENCY.
The Brain Power System provides children and parents with tools to identify, assess, and assist with challenges associated with Autism. We provide repeatable, numerical assessment of the key challenges; and gamified, fun training aimed to partially overcome them — often combined into a single experience. The challenges we address relate to language, social engagement, emotion decoding, eye contact, motor behaviors, and abstract category formation. In a way, we are creating a gamified experience for more productive human social interactions – helping to write the unwritten rules of social engagement. The Brain Power System runs on an enhanced version of Google Glass. Our software and hardware enhancements are modular and can beused with other smart-glass systems, e.g in the emerging ecosystem of head-mounted wearable computers ushed in by Glass.
We are committed to taking your family from potential to reality! ®

Dr. Sahin is a neuroscientist and neurotechnology entrepreneur. He holds degrees in neuroscience from Williams College (BA), MIT (Master’s), and Harvard (PhD), and completed post-doctoral fellowships at UCSD Medical School and the Salk Institute in San Diego. His academic work has been published in journals such as Science and Nature Neuroscience, and he has been invited and presented his research in dozens of cities across twelve countries.
He also worked at Bell Labs and in startups and mid-sized companies, in Boston, San Diego, London and Dublin; and has been the Principal Investigator for five government contracts for wearable brain monitoring systems to assess and modulate cognitive states. Dr. Sahin founded Brain Power, LLC to bring neuroscience ideas and technological innovations to people who can directly benefit from them.
Dr. Sahin is a hands-on leader of the growing Brain Power team, actively participating in coding software, as well as designing and producing hardware add-ons for Google Glass — to unlock the power of this nascent wearable platform to use it as a neuro-assistive device that in turn can unlock the power of your brain.

See the CEO bio above. Ned is excited to roll up the sleeves and help make a difference for society – to unlock the power of your brain!
A stalwart foundational team member, Dr. Sossong brings to the team his clinical experience with Autism Spectrum children in the Psychiatry & Neurology departments at Harvard Medical School / MGH, as well as experience as a software company CEO before his medical career. His wisdom, and expertise across the clinical, strategy, and technology-translation spectrum help propel Brain Power in a scientifically-based and practical direction.
Prof. Miller is a long-time mentor and active participant for the Brain Power team and team members. The Picower Professor of Neuroscience at MIT, Earl has done seminal work in systems neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience, including on how the brain/mind forms abstract categories (a central challenge in autism). He brings prodigious scientific force and experience to our team, and expertise in managing large scientific projects, and teams.
A scholar, former educator, and edu-tech entrepreneur, Rafiq is a Boston-area native and understands the real nature of our educational system. His graduate studies at Harvard gave him a theory-based toolset for educating those with special needs, grounded by his real-world and practical experience with the nuances of the educational system in action.
Arshya Vahabzadeh, M.D., is a Harvard Medical School based physician, trained in both medicine and psychiatry. He is the incoming Chairman of the Council on Communications of the American Psychiatric Association and a consultant to Khan Academy, Neurolaunch, and Anthem. Dr. Vahabzadeh has published extensively in clinical neuroscience and neurobiology, and has over 20 awards from organizations including the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association.
Dr. Cash brings extensive clinical, clinical-trial, technological, medical-device, scholarly, and government-contract experience and wisdom to the Brain Power team. Syd is a Neurologist, Epileptologist and professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School / Mass. General Hospital. He is also a wonderful colleague and it is a great pleasure to have Syd on the Brain Power team.
With a doctoral degree from Oxford and extensive experience in industry and technology (in the US and UK), Dr. Coates is foremost a problem-solver. Having had several roles where his key task was to uncover and implement solutions that had been long missed by experts, his daring creative and technical thinking are much appreciated by the Brain Power team. His creativity and daring also extend to his leisure pursuits – ask him about hiking to the north pole.
Our offerings are deeply rooted in science. Our Scientific Advisory Board of top scientists helps keep us current with the latest neuroscience and autism-related findings, and will help supervise fundamental-science research projects and publications.
Though our goal is transformative positive change, only sound business practices will sustain our staff and allow us to reach that goal. Our Busines and Strategy Board helps keep our feet on the ground, in best practices, while we keep our eyes on the sky.
Nothing can replace the insight, or dedication, of autism parents! We count on our carefully chosen and zealous Parents Board members for their honest guidance as to what will truly help their (and others') children.
Our technologies provide cognitive enhancement. We target urgent need, but naturally want to help all. It is never too early to be proactive: our Ethics Board keeps internal discussions grounded in our desire neither to be nor allow evil.
The • BRAINFOREST • is a fun and lively conversation. We meet when and where we can, sometimes virutally, and play in a field of stimulating ideas - always about tapping into the power of the brain. The company's new directions can be born here.
Note: Some Boards have a remaining opening. Apply to be considered — email@example.com
