Over 30% of patients who survive the treatment in intensive care units (ICU’s) report newly-acquired or accelerated cognitive impairment. Of those, between a third and half are on the verge of unemployment 12 months later, often due to cognitive recovery issues. A recent study demonstrates that with 42 hours of BrainHQ training, a significantly more positive, prognosis outcome can be achieved.
Time and again, BrainHQ has shown to make a positive impact on people’s health, while also lowering the impact on governmental healthcare costs. If you’ve missed your round of brain training today, please be sure to try an exercise here.
Just like fingerprints, your brain is distinctly unique

Study led by Swiss neuropsychologists links genetic factors along with experiences as the two key determinants shaping our brains. Based on the latest magnetic resonance imaging technology, the findings are noteworthy as past studies concluded the human brain had few if any uniquely identifiable characteristics.

Brain metastases survival rate doubles with immunotherapy
New research analysis on cancer data out of the United States shows use of immunotherapy in treatment of melanoma, which has metastasized to the brain, as significantly improving survival odds. Researchers achieved this by focusing on boosting the immune system's anticancer powers through using drugs that block specific proteins in cells. Learn more here
Brain of autistic children folds differently compared to norm
Where the typical human brain is more akin to a giant-sized walnut, the brain of individuals who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder exhibit more folding in the parietal, temporal and frontal regions. By identifying physical differences at an earlier age, the research aims to better help caregivers of autistic children obtain more timely access to community support resources. Read details here
