Black and White Abstract Texture

Welcome to the future. We are here to

Democratize Cognitive Science.

Vertex Biology was founded from a simple idea - transform cutting edge cognitive science research into free tools for at-home medical applications.

Black and White Abstract Texture

Cutting-edge cognitive science researches loses half its potential every time it is transformed for commercial applications. 

Why?

Most users don't understand, and don't care to understand the back-end.

Scientific language is a massive barrier of entry, marketers and developers don't have the time to see beyond the jargon.

Most researchers and developers who understand the tech suck at designing simple UI.

"The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink."

- George Orwell, Politics and the English Language

Filled with Inspiration from Orwell's thoughts about democratizing language for the masses, the founders set out to democratize cognitive science for the masses.
