Thomas Crook, Ph.D., has joined the Cognitive Labs advisory board, in one of two announcements we will be making today. We first got to know Tom during the process of rolling out the BrainSpeed product on behalf of the wellness company Natrol (since acquired by Plethico Holdings of Mumbai). He also is highly recommended by several individuals holding academic posts at Stanford. He might be considered the founder of diagnostic cognitive clinical assessment in the pharmaceutical realm, with an extensive knowledge of neuropsychological instruments. His consulting work also includes institutions such as NASA and the FDA

Here is his background:

Dr. Crook also writes the "Head Coach" column for Rodale's Prevention magazine. Dr. Crook has served as a consultant to most of the world's major pharmaceutical companies and to governmental agencies ranging from NASA (e.g., your brain, on space) to the FDA. He also has been Chairman of Task Forces formed by both the NIMH and the American Psychological Association (APA) to establish guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of adult-onset cognitive disorders.
