I am thrilled to announce that, in addition to our Ottawa in-person Brain Fitness Classes, we will be offering group-facilitated classes over the internet due to high demand from various locations. We have trialed this method, and the feedback was great. Participants would be able to see each other and communicate with one another, fostering a collective experience of being together in the “same space”.
The objective of offering these classes is to motivate participants to complete an effective round of training under our supervision, to share information on the design and science behind BrainHQ exercises, and to address any questions you might have. The course registration fee for the entire 6 weeks is only $45 (Canadian), ensuring that all that’s needed for you to join is a desire to improve your brain health.
For further information, please visit the links below. Fall classes are limited, so if you wish to join, register soon. Please also note that if, in the end, you do not find the classes beneficial, we will refund your registration fee in full.

Most of us use our smartphones or tablets daily, but scientists now claim that excessive use of e-devices could be detrimental to our ability to learn. Researchers used neuroimaging to analyze brain activity during e-device use. They found that areas of brain activity during e-device use did not correlate to areas of brain activity essential for reading to learn from articles and textbooks. Without compensating for this by exercising all parts of the brain, our ability to learn may suffer.

Keep calm, and stay in control
We all know that keeping our blood pressure in check is important for our health, but did you know that controlling your blood pressure intensively could help prevent brain lesions? New evidence looks at the connection between midlife hypertension and white matter lesions that can lead to cognitive impairment. In a study involving over 400 participants, scientists found that intensive blood pressure control lowered the likelihood of developing these lesions.

Spot it early on
Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects more than two million people across the world, and, as yet, there is no cure. However, researchers could have a way to identify the more aggressive and debilitating form of the disease. Identifying ongoing “smouldering” inflammation (or chronic active lesions) earlier on could help identify those at risk of developing the more aggressive form of MS and hopefully will lead to better diagnosis and therapy for those with the disease.
