Retired U.S. Marine Colonel to Head Military Sector for CNS Response's Referenced-EEG® Mental Health Database

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - CNS Response, Inc. (OTCBB: CNSO) today announced that retired U.S. Marine Colonel Stewart Navarre has been named the company's vice president, customer relations, and will head its military sector efforts for the company's Referenced-EEG®. Referenced-EEG (rEEG®) is an online database providing medical professionals with information on mental health medication response in patients. The database helps physicians reduce trial and error in medication prescribing for patients, improve patient outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and decrease the suffering of patients and their families. 

"As a Marine and now as a civilian, I have seen the impacts of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health disorders on individuals and on families," said Navarre. "I am proud to be working with an innovative company like CNS Response that can help improve military mental health." 

Today, most physicians in other disciplines have access to objective data gathered from EKGs, MRIs, CT scans, blood tests and similar procedures. However, broadly speaking, such advances have not previously been available to medical professionals treating mental illness. Developed by CNS Response, Referenced-EEG provides objective, personalized, statistical data on a patient's neurophysiology. 

Navarre brings to his new position significant background in business development, operations, logistics and large scale project management. Most recently he served as business development director, federal sector pursuits, for Bethel Services, Inc. Prior to that he was managing director, project management - Southern California for CB Richard Ellis, the world's largest commercial real estate firm.

A retired U.S. Marine Colonel, Navarre has more than 30 years' experience in overseas operations and conflict, including battlefield situations, and in domestic leadership positions. His military assignments include serving as commanding officer for a Marine infantry regiment in Iraq; as branch head at the service headquarters at the Pentagon; as an operations officer for the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, and as chief of staff, Camp Pendleton, Calif., where he directed a 12,000-member workforce operating seven major Department of Defense installations. 

Navarre is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy with a bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry. He received a master's degree in business from the University of Evansville, Indiana. He is also a graduate of the National Defense College in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Originally from Monroe, Mich., Navarre graduated from Monroe High School. 

Navarre currently resides in Rancho Santa Margarita, Orange County, Calif., with his wife, Yana. They have two children, Alexandra and Zachary. Alexandra is a graduate of Vanguard University and is a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserve. Zachary returned from Afghanistan in 2010 and completed a four year enlistment in the Marine Corps. He is pursuing an undergraduate degree in international business. 

About CNS Response
CNS Response provides reference data and analytic tools for clinicians and researchers, using a novel neurometric database called Referenced-EEG® (rEEG). Developed by physicians as a platform to exchange objective, neurophysiology-based data on medication response and outcomes, physicians using rEEG in clinical trials have consistently reduced their use of trial and error pharmacotherapy and improved patient outcomes, thereby helping patients feel well sooner and reducing healthcare costs. 

In a study published in the January 2011 issue of the Journal of Psychiatric Research, physicians who used rEEG achieved a 65 percent success rate in treating patients with depression, compared to a 39 percent success rate with the control group. Those results were even more significant because the subjects in the study, selected through a randomized process, had failed an average of four previous treatments for depression.
