Patrick K. Porter, PhD has dedicated his life to studying neuropsychology. For years it was believed that we have a set number of brain cells, that our intelligence quotient is fixed, and that our brains do not change. Dr. Porter’s clinical experience and research told a different story, revealing that the human brain is, in fact, plastic, making it capable of change, improvement, and expansion. Patrick’s discoveries led him to develop the BrainTap headset, sparking incredible transformation for thousands of people. In 2014, with the emergence of the Apple and Android mobile platforms, he saw the opportunity to impact millions more by bringing this technology to an app. Thus, the brain fitness company – BrainTap® – was born.
Since then, BrainTap has brought hope to countless lives, including business leaders, parents, professional athletes, struggling students, and others in need. BrainTap has proven that your brain can be retrained to operate at its best and that it’s never too late to tap into your brain’s fullest potential. BrainTap is now established as the global leader in brain fitness. With its state-of-the-art headset and a suite of more than 1800 sessions that range across dozens of desired life outcomes, the company has made great strides in revitalizing the mental clarity, confidence, and energy of extraordinary individuals worldwide.
Patrick is now a featured brain health and wellness expert in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Women’s Health, Entrepreneur, Forbes and Men’s Journal and on media outlets like ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN. His SleepRX program was voted Best of 2019 by Health magazine, and in 2020, his scientific breakthroughs earned him the coveted lifetime achievement award from the Interdisciplinary Association of Functional Neurosciences and Rehabilitation (IAFNR).
