I recently read an article on memory which was frequently quoting Dr. Merzenich, the brain behind our BrainHQ program and I thought I would share a few lines with you:
"Memory might be the issue bothering most baby boomers, but the benefits of brain training have to go deeper than that…"
"What good is it to train your brain if it doesn’t apply to your everyday life? You want to see real impact, not just learn some trick on a computer. So you have to do things that are not specifically about memory, that are more elemental. We’re driving changes across the whole system, not just at the highest level where we perceive there are problems. [BrainHQ] is designed to correct the whole machine."

Failing once and we’re more likely to fail again, why?

From time to time we’ve all heard about someone going into a downward spiral when bad things pile upon one another. When we fail at something our brains become more prone to reinforcing this behaviour. Luckily, there are a few simple things we can all do to reset our brain’s process to deal with failure and end the stress involved. Read about it here
Your brain has an emergency power backup
It takes a lot of our body’s energy to keep our brains running smoothly. When however we’re in the middle of a stressful situation and our energy stores are depleted it affects our cognitive function. But our brains are able to make a temporary energy source to help us get through these times. Read about the details here
Can neuroscience help with chronic pain?
Managing chronic pain has long been a struggle for clinicians and patients. Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas have made some interesting observations of biochemical reactions within our brains that may lead to new treatments. Having these reactions working properly to control the neuronetwork in charge of managing pain might well be the next step for new therapies on chronic pain. Read more about their research here
