March is Brain Awareness Month, and this is a great opportunity for setting brain health resolutions! To recap, there are six pillars to maintaining a healthy brain: physical exercise, cognitive training, brain health nutrition, high-quality sleep, an active social life, and low stress levels.

Until recently, there haven’t been any good guidelines for choosing a brain-training program. But in 2015, the experts at the National Academy of Medicine released an important report that included a five-item checklist to use to determine whether a brain-training program is scientifically proven—or whether it’s making claims it can’t back up. And to the best of our knowledge, BrainHQ is the only program that can check off all five of these criteria!

If you are not yet a BrainHQ regular user, now is the time to commit, and I would deeply appreciate it if you could share this important message with your friends and families.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.

Brain power you need to forget
Did you know that it could be easier to remember than to forget? Somewhat counter-intuitively, new research indicates that, to forget an unwanted experience, you might need to focus more attention on it. Too strong, and it will strengthen the memory; too weak, and you won't change it. It's the intention to forget that increases the activation of the memory. Find out more here.

Parenting 101
Parenting can be tough. Mothers and fathers often have different approaches. New evidence suggests that those differences could be influenced by a particular region of the brain. Research studying mice shows that male and female brains promote parenting differently due to a brain region called the amygdala. This discovery could help shed light on broader questions about sex differences in the brain. Learn more here.

Tracing Alzheimer’s in the brain
Scientists know that Alzheimer’s leaves its mark by actually physically altering the brain, shrinking certain brain structures, even before the first signs of dementia have appeared. This led researchers to ask when and how differences occur between a fully healthy brain and one of someone with Alzheimer’s. In an ambitious research project, scientists used MRI scans of over 4,000 brains to try and find answers. Find out what they discovered here.

Impulse control
What if we could accurately predict addiction before it happens? New research supports the idea that your biological makeup can inform whether you’re likely to develop an addiction later in life. Studies on young people have revealed that there is a correlation between impulsive behaviour and abnormalities in a region of the brain associated with addiction. Find out more here.

Forty winks
Who would have thought that, thanks to a small, see-through fish, we can learn more about what happens in our brains while we sleep. The zebrafish has transparent skin and a transparent skull, which enabled scientists to observe their DNA in individual brain cells while the fish slept. The researchers’ findings shed light on how our brains repair themselves while we sleep. Learn 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!
