Spun out from MIT in 2016, Cognito Therapeutics combats neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Their treatments originate from their hypothesis that sensory stimulation could evoke gamma activity in Alzheimer’s disease and slow the rate of disease progression.

They started 2024 with a Series B extension that raised USD 35m, receiving a total of USD 161.3m in financing to date. Central to Cognito is their headset, dubbed Spectris, which delivers flashing lights and sounds through a pair of connected glasses and headphones to stimulate gamma waves in the brain. A recent single-blind study involving the headset’s use on patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease highlighted some potential benefits, with a Phase 3 study currently underway.
