Network | An important characteristic of COGITO is to analyze symptoms and diseases from several different perspectives and to work in a network of various disciplines. Cooperation with medical colleagues of different specialties and fields allows for an integral care of the patients.
Research-based | COGITO works on the basis of the latest scientific insights, among others thanks to its own research efforts, and ensures treatment according to the latest standards and the most promising diagnostic and therapeutic endeavors.
The COGITO Center was founded by Prof. Dr. Dipl. Psych. Iris-Katharina Penner in Düsseldorf, Germany and opened in May 2015. It is a neurocognitive competence center in which research and development, diagnostics, cognitive therapies and consultations are carried out. The close connection between research and clinical-therapeutic application is embedded in a context of different disciplines (e.g. neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, psychology, radiology, general medicine) and institutions (e.g. university clinics, rehabilitation clinics, medical practices).
