We were hoping for a smooth transition to the new version of BrainHQ. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have switched to the new version with little notice. We apologize for that!

The good news is that our new version is based on your feedback and the extensive work by the scientists at Posit Science; the results are very promising. We are currently working on a webpage that will inform you of the changes in this new version and will aim to address most of your questions.

Please bear with us while we work on the website below, which is a work in progress, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.


Kind regards,

Women’s brains are ‘younger’ than men’s
We’ve all heard that statistically women live longer than men, but did you know that women’s brains may even be “younger” than men’s? By analyzing the flow of oxygen and glucose in the brain, scientists have discovered that, when it comes to metabolism, women’s brains are around three years younger than men’s. This research could explain why women stay mentally sharp longer than men. Find out more here.

Mapping Alzheimer’s in the brain
A team of researchers has mapped how Alzheimer’s affects the brain. This pioneering study consists of over 24,000 data points, and is freely available for scientists to use. This is the world’s largest comprehensive Alzheimer’s brain map and is shedding new light on how different parts of the brain are affected by the disease. Learn more here.

Turning thoughts into speech
Losing the ability to speak can be devastating, but there could be hope. Scientists have recently discovered how to turn brain waves into speech using Artificial Intelligence. Further research is still needed, but scientists say that for those who have lost their speech through injury or disease, this developing research could be a game changer. Discover more here.

This neuroscientist makes memories and suppresses them
Can you imagine if you could replace bad memories with good ones? Neuroscientists claim that experiences leave actual physical traces on the brain and that these memories may even be reshaped. In recent research conducted on mice, it appears that researchers have discovered how to suppress bad memories by activating positive ones. These results could benefit those suffering from anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Find out more here.

Time to pull the plug?
There has long been debate about how social media affects daily life. A new study has looked into what happens when you quit Facebook. There appear to be many benefits: improved mood, more time spent with loved ones, and an hour of extra free time a day! And if that doesn’t have you convinced, some studies link Facebook to mental distress, meaning pulling the plug may be a smart choice for your mental well-being. Read more here.

Your Brain Holds the Key to Safer Driving!
Your brain is one of the most important pieces of safety equipment when you get behind the wheel of a car. As we age, our reaction times slow down and our field of vision decreases. This means our safety on the road is also reduced. By spending only 10 hours doing the engaging driving cognitive training program you can save your life and the lives of others on the road!
