Dr. Stuart Zola / MapHabit

Dr. Stuart Zola is Co-Founder of MapHabit. He is nationally renowned neuroscientist and Professor (emeritus) of Psychiatry & Behavior Sciences at Emory University.

Impressive gains in our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have not created therapies that are safe and effective. In March of last year, MapHabit was founded out of a mutual passion to help people with memory impairment live better. The MapHabitTM System (MHS) is a personalized, mapping software for mobile devices that is safe, noninvasive, and low in cost, which helps memory-impaired individuals and caregivers accomplish daily activities and improve independent function. MHS is easy to use and accessible on many consumer technology devices that were previously not very user-friendly for people living with dementia.

Innovative aspects of MapHabit’s patent-pending process include that it is highly adaptable so that as a person’s cognitive abilities change, the accessibility features also evolve with the individual, and the MHS focusses on the habit memory part of the brain which helps individuals to successfully develop routines and habits, even if memory is impaired.  MapHabit’s software is being translated to various languages/cultures and will be usable across a wide range of medical conditions, including mild cognitive impairment (MCI), AD/related dementias, traumatic brain injury (TBI), special needs (developmental and physical disabilities), mood disorders (depression, anxiety), and aging-related disorders.
