Presentation at 2011 NEI Global Psychopharmacology Congress Highlights Successful Use of PEER Online™ to Reduce Trial and Error Medication Selection for Non-Psychotic Patients

Poster Features Findings of Retrospective Eight-Year Patient Chart Review

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2011) - CNS Response, Inc. (OTCBB: CNSO) today announced that Poster 106, featured at the 2011 NEI Global Psychopharmacology Congress, highlights the use of PEER Online™ to assist physicians in reducing trial and error medication selection and avoiding possible severe adverse events from medications for non-psychotic patients. The findings are from a retrospective eight-year patient chart review that was conducted by Daniel A. Hoffman, M.D., Deb Arrera, CNS, RXN and Nicole Shadid, M.D.

PEER Online, which builds on CNS Response's original physician-developed database, Referenced-EEG® (rEEG®), is a physician-developed information tool aimed at providing fellow physicians with data they can use to improve patient outcomes. PEER Online enables physicians to compare and learn which medication treatments have been effective, and which have been ineffective for their peers in treating patients with similar EEGs.

According to CNS Response Chief Medical Officer, Daniel Hoffman, M.D., "In our review of patient charts from an eight-year period, we found that when physicians used information provided through PEER Online to treat patients, they successfully reduced patient suffering from severe adverse effects, which can be a result of prescribing medications not suited to a patient's neurophysiology. The chart review also showed a decline in reported suicidality, from 26 percent down to 4 percent, when patients were treated using data provided through PEER Online. In addition, we also found that just over 10 percent of the patients actually needed no medication at all. These are significant results that demonstrate the value of PEER Online's data suggesting that objective information combined with clinical judgment can offer safer and better outcomes."

The poster, Using A Referenced-EEG Database to Assist in Predicting Severe Adverse Events and Selecting Medications for Non-Psychotic Patients - A Retrospective Chart Review, was presented Friday, November 11, at the 2011 NEI Global Psychopharmacology Congress, held in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
