This self-assessment is based on solid research. Studies describing its utility have been published in peer reviewed scientific and medical journals (see below).
The identifiable information of the individual taking the test is not collected by or available to MindX Sciences. The prescriber only has access to it, and can discuss the results with the individual.
It is up to the prescriber if and how they use the test information. Decisions on the care and treatment are based on the independent judgement and expertise of the prescriber. MindX Sciences assumes no responsibility for outcomes.
