Our current projects

NeuroSpring is developing new medical technologies to diagnose and treat the major neurological conditions that plague the world.


The Artificial Intelligence
Diagnostic Project

The Virtual Neurologist is a medical device that can diagnose neurological emergencies in ambulances and hospital emergency departments everywhere. (The Virtual Neurologist is in collaboration with Faucetworks LLC. No product is currently available for sale.)


The Facial Nerve
Stimulation Project

Facial nerve stimulation is a promising treatment for conditions of brain ischemia such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cardiac arrest. NeuroSpring is a leading authority in preclinical testing of invasive and non-invasive facial nerve stimulation.


The Teleneurology Project

TeleSpring is an initiative of NeuroSpring that intends to connect neurologists with hospitals and clinics located in communities that need teleneurology services.

Know us by our work

Founded in 2005 and based in Napa, California, since 2017, NeuroSpring is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity with a unique mission: To advance neuroscientific research and training that drives improved healthcare for the underserved. Here are some facts about us:

We have introduced more than 20 high school interns to basic science and computer engineering techniques, with more than 90% of them advancing on to college in a STEM field.

We have supported two of our high school interns with college scholarships through the NeuroSpring Scholars program.

We have worked with several college interns during their studies in computer engineering to advance the development of the Virtual Neurologist project.

We have received grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, the Bugher Foundation, the European Commission, and the National Headache Foundation.

We have published research manuscripts in BioMed Central, Brain Research, Cerebrovascular Diseases, Headache, Medical Hypotheses, Nature, Neurology, Stroke, and other top-rated, peer-reviewed journals.

We have presented research reports at numerous scientific meetings including the AI Med conference, the American Neurological Association annual meeting, the American Academy of Neurology annual meeting, the International Stroke Conference, and the European Stroke Organization Conference.

We have published a board examination textbook for neurology residents with Thieme Medical Publishers.

We are prolific participants in Skype a Scientist, an educational program linking NeuroSpring scientists and engineers to pre-college classrooms from coast-to-coast in the U.S. and Canada.

We have received Platinum certification from GuideStar™ and four-star certification from Charity Navigator™ for our organizational transparency and efficient use of funding.

We have been certified as a U.S. public charity by the IRS continuously since 2006.
