DNB Pro is a development of cognitive neuroscience paradigms that have evolved over several decades.

Mark-Ashton-Smith-PhDMy name is Mark Ashton Smith and my current work focuses on brain training R&D, mind-body performance & resilience, self-quantification, and making cognitive neuroscience tools and paradigms widely available to improve cognition and mental health. My current scientific research program HRP Lab- can be found here.

I am actively involved in ongoing collaborations with a number of university researchers around the world who are in the field of cognitive neuroscience and cognitive training.

I got my Ph.D. in cognitive psychology and neuroscience from the joint Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh University Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) program.

For a number of years I was a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in the Experimental Psychology Department at the University of Cambridge, England, and it was during this period that the Dual N-Back Pro app was conceived.
