CNS Response Provides Update Regarding Former CEO

Annual Meeting of Stockholders to Be Held September 29, 2009

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - August 10, 2009) - CNS Response, Inc. (OTCBB: CNSO), (the "Company," "CNS") is issuing this press release to provide its stockholders with further updates regarding Len Brandt, the Company's former CEO, and his repeated attempts to hold a special meeting of CNS stockholders.

According to CNS Response CEO George Carpenter, Brandt has recently sent out another mailing to CNS stockholders announcing his attempt to call yet another special meeting -- this time on August 17, 2009. This is the sixth time he has tried to call a meeting since June. His June 30 meeting never occurred and then again on July 3 (a holiday), July 12 (a Sunday), July 21 and July 30 he tried to call meetings to order and adjourn them each time because no quorum was present.

"This is an expensive waste of shareholder time and money," commented Carpenter. "Mr. Brandt knows that we already have an annual meeting scheduled for September 29. He doesn't have SEC-filed proxy materials to deliver to stockholders and shouldn't be trying to get anyone's proxy for his purported meeting. This just seems like part of his ongoing effort to disrupt the Company."

The Company believes that Brandt's most recent actions are further evidence of his plans to pursue his personal agenda while disenfranchising other CNS stockholders. By continuing his attempts to hold his purported meeting when he knows the Company has scheduled an annual meeting in September to cover the same issue -- the election of directors -- and when he knows that the Company's bylaws prohibit him from calling a special meeting to elect directors, the Company believes Brandt continues to show his lack of interest in ensuring that the views of all CNS stockholders are represented.

Carpenter commented, "His latest SEC filings are of particular concern as they continue to contain material misstatements of fact with respect to his own shareholdings, his proxies in hand, and his lack of fiduciary conduct as a Board member. For example, he claims to have had 'numerous discussions with potential investors' about investing in CNS, but has never shared that information with the Company. Since he knows we are actively engaged in financing efforts, his withholding of information from his fellow Board members can only hurt CNS stockholders. And now he's told the SEC that he wants to use proxies for 'any meeting' of our stockholders. As he was unable to line up financing in over a year and ran the company into near-insolvency, I'm not sure how stockholders would benefit by giving him a blank check now."

The Company wishes to again make clear to its stockholders that any communications from Brandt or others working with him do not come from or reflect the opinions or views of the Company, are not communications from the Company or the Board of Directors and have not been authorized by or consented to by them.
