Neuroscience technology firm Cambridge Cognition (COG) FOLLOW announced on Monday its expansion into the Chinese Market with the company’s Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery ("CANTAB") computerised assessments. 

Originally developed at the University of Cambridge, the CANTAB test detects changes in neuropsychological performance, including cognitive assessments evaluating a range of cerebral functions from working memory to decision making and response control.

Cognitive assessments like CANTAB are widely considered an invaluable tool for understanding the role of specific brain functions. 

In their efforts to prepare the technology for its roll-out into the Chinese market, the company have worked to develop task variants in the key spoken languages, Cantonese and Mandarin, as well as the written languages in Chinese simplified.

The company has also aided the collection of data in China by building a secure cloud infrastructure using Amazon Web Services.

Matthew Stork, Chief Executive Officer of Cambridge Cognition, commented: "By establishing a cloud infrastructure in a data centre in China and translating tasks into the key languages, we have brought CANTAB to the Chinese market in a way that considerably expands our commercial opportunities.”

Additionally, securing the infrastructure within a data centre in China will enable straight-forward compliance with China's scientific data transfer regulations, the company explained. 

Mr Stork characterised the expansion as a milestone event for the company, stating: “This a major step forward for Cambridge Cognition's global expansion plans. Many of our CANTAB tasks are now available in almost 50 languages and have been used worldwide in over 100 countries."

This morning's announcement has built on the company’s emerging presence in the global markets after securing its first partnership in India earlier this year. To kick-start its developments, Cambridge Cognition has already signed a recurring annual contract with Fudan University, Shanghai, a top 5 ranked university in China.
