We Joined Forces To Create Technology That Will Build2Win
Cognitive neuroscientists and colleagues, Brandon Ally and Scott Wylie, were watching the 2014 NFL Draft and observed analysts breaking down the prospects with words like great instincts, plays faster than his footspeed, nose for the ball, field vision, etc. What they were missing was a way to measure these skills. Together, Brandon and Scott launched S2 Cognition to leverage their backgrounds as athletes and vast experience of studying the brain in order to generate testing that's scientifically-proven to measure these unique abilities in athletes. The S2 platform gives athletes and coaches a baseline for how to improve their performance over strength, speed and conditioning drills.
MEET THE TEAM
Scott Wylie, Ph.D
Founder And Chief Operating Officer
Scott received his PhD in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology from Indiana University in 2002 and completed post-doctoral training at the University of Virginia. He has been a faculty member at the University of Virginia, Vanderbilt University, and University of Louisville. He has published 50+ peer-reviewed papers and book chapters on brain mechanisms involved in the control, timing, and learning of motor actions. He specializes in how individuals execute split-second decisions to start, stop, and change actions as well as control motor impulses in the face of pressure and distraction. Scott is a co-founder S2 Cognition and Vice President. Scott played baseball collegiately.
Brandon Ally, Ph.D
Founder And Vice President For Business Development
Brandon received his PhD in neuropsychology from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2004, and completed postdoctoral training in cognitive neuroscience at Harvard Medical School and Boston University. He has been a faculty member at Boston University, Vanderbilt University, and University of Louisville. A published author of 50+ peer-reviewed papers and book chapters on brain mechanisms underlying visual attention, perception and memory, Brandon specializes in how individuals attend, track, and process information in dynamic visual environments.
