Frequently Asked Questions
Getting started with HippoCamera
Our studies show that using HippoCamera for just minutes a day can create long-lasting memory benefits. Read more about the research behind HippoCamera here.
The science behind HippoCamera
Our team has researched and published the positive effects that HippoCamera has on memory. In research studies, people had much-improved recall of events they recorded and replayed versus those who didn’t use the app -- it boosted event recall by an average of 47%. In addition, we’ve worked with individuals outside of the lab environment and found the same benefits to memory. You can read about our studies here.
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) we showed that hippocampal activity was enhanced for memories of events replayed with HippoCamera. Specifically, the patterns of activity in the hippocampus were sharper for those events. This helps to keep our memories for different events from being confused with each other. Read more about it here.
We are a team of experts in the science of memory at leading institutions in North America developed HippoCamera based on the simple question, “Can we design a digital platform to mimic that function of a brain region that is compromised in Alzheimer's Disease?”. Learn more about us here.
HippoCamera in an Elder Care setting
Individuals using HippoCamera for a few minutes a day experienced an average 47% boost in their ability to remember specific events that lasted over a 3 month period, even without HippoCamera use. Read more about the results of our studies here.
