We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Federation of Quebec Alzheimer Societies (FQAS) to offer our scientifically-backed training program, BrainHQ, to their members and caregivers.
During Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, Posit Science and DynamicBrain have teamed up to donate 30% of BrainHQ proceeds to the FQAS. This additional funding will allow the organization to do even more of the essential advocacy, education, and caregiver support that is core to our mission.
The organization is also launching the first BrainHQ class at their Granby Chapter in February 2017.
Please support the cause by subscribing to BrainHQ at Federation of Quebec Alzheimer Societies or in French at Fédération Québécoise des Sociétés Alzheimer, and we will donate 30% to the organization in your name.
Endogenous Retroviruses in Genome Important for Human Brain
Kind regards,Frieda Fanni
DynamicBrain Inc. is the Canadian partner of Posit Science Corporation providing brain fitness program BrainHQ in English and French.
To understand how the human brain evolved into its current form and how neurological diseases began affecting people, we may need to look at our “junk” DNA. Researchers have discovered that about 8% of our DNA that was once considered extraneous actually contains endogenous retroviruses that can affect how our DNA creates essential proteins used in brain development. Could these ancient retroviruses hold the key to understanding certain brain diseases? Find out here
Recording brain images in utero
Understanding how the human brain develops and grows is an incredibly complex and ongoing process. While links have been made between premature birth and neurological issues, scientists have finally developed the tools to record images of fetal brain development and brain activity in utero. Learn more about how they recorded these images and what this means for understanding and treating new brains being formed, here
BrainHQ proven to improve chemo-brain
It seems a cruel joke for patients already going through chemotherapy to have to suffer the additional indignity of chemobrain. However, as this report (video)
also shows, the cognitive impairment associated with chemotherapy treatments can be combatted with regular brain training on BrainHQ
. So if you, or anyone you know is concerned about the ability to remember names and places because of chemo treatments, please read and share our research information here
