BFS SELECTS BRAIN HQ
FOR COGNITIVE CONDITIONING


 

Researchers Find BrainHQ Has the Most, and the Best, Science

Scientists affiliated with five research institutes in Australia recently conducted the first systematic review of the studies supporting various commercial brain-training products. They found most brain apps had no studies to support them, and only BrainHQ had multiple high quality studies. The reviewers noted that BrainHQ had multiple studies that “fulfilled the gold standard for clinical trials.” The review was published in Neuropsychological Review.

About BrainHQ

BrainHQ is an online brain-training system built by Posit Science. It features 29 exercises that work out attention, memory, brain speed, intelligence, navigation, and people skills. More than 100 papers have been published in scientific journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association, on the BrainHQ exercises and assessments.

The Cognitive Benefits are Proven

More than 100 published scientific papers show the benefits of BrainHQ exercises and assessments. Most of these were independently conducted by scientists at respected universities, such as the University of Southern California, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins.

Why This Matters

BrainHQ has 29 online exercises that work out attention, brain speed, memory, people skills, navigation, and intelligence.

If you want, you can have BrainHQ tell you exactly which exercises to do, and in which order: the personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continually measures your performance and serves up the exercises that will benefit you the most. Or if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your goals and standards.

Published Research on BrainHQ and Brain Processing Speed

Perhaps the most important goal of BrainHQ training is to speed up your brain’s processing. That is because quick, accurate processing of information that comes in through hearing, reading and vision affects “higher” cognitive functions – such as memory and problem solving. When the brain cannot keep up with the speed at which information is coming in, it makes only partial representations of that information. This has short-term and long-term effects. In the short term, for example, it might lead you to mishear a play call or classroom instructions. In the long term, for example, it may affect memory and decision-making, since your brain only has a fuzzy recording to rely on. 
Many BrainHQ exercises are designed to gradually speed up visual and auditory processing. Some 20 papers have shown improvements in speed of processing.
The IMPACT Study (led by researchers at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Southern California) showed that using six BrainHQ exercises for 40 hours led to an average increase in auditory processing speed of 135%.
*The ACTIVE Study, one of the largest and most prestigious studies on cognitive training in adults ever conducted, saw a doubling, on average, in visual processing speed after just 10 hours of training with an exercise in BrainHQ, now called Double Decision. 
Two imaging studies led by scientists at Northwestern University showed that training with a set of BrainHQ’s auditory exercises could reverse negative trends in the brain: one recorded faster neural timing and precision and the other saw a better balance of speech representation in the brain. Both showed that these structural brain changes were accompanied by functional changes in how well the people could process sound and hear in noisy environments.
Dozens of other studies have shown that improvements in processing speed have benefits in real world activities, such as driving, balance, gait and everyday cognition.

5 Minute Exercises

It takes under five minutes to do each BrainHQ level, so you can use it in tiny bites or long blocks, depending on your class or team schedule. Use BrainHQ on almost any computer or mobile device. You can set up team training goals and have BrainHQ send you training reminders.

Like the BFS Total Program keeping records is the key

You train in one exercise for less than five minutes at a time. Then you train at that exercise again, either right away or at a later time - until you are at your best. Sometimes that takes a few tries, and sometimes it takes many.
The program provides feedback for each level, you can review your starting score, your improvement, your training effort, and much more.
Like BFS you are not competing against others. You are competing against yourself, working to perform better than you did when you started.
