I am a strong advocate for health benefits of tai-chi and have been training in the past many years at the International Charitable Organization, Taoist Tai Chi.
I always believed that Tai Chi and our cognitive training program, BrainHQ, go hand-in-hand to generate a higher physical and cognitive benefits.
I would like to invite you to read the results from a literature review and recent clinical trials that have shown there is abundant evidence on the health and fitness effects of tai-chi.

Gut bacteria connected to a brain defect
Kind regards,Frieda Fanni
DynamicBrain Inc. is the Canadian partner of Posit Science Corporation providing brain fitness program BrainHQ in English and French.
We are all familiar with colloquial stories about how accidents lead to major scientific discoveries such as Newton’s apple falling from the tree or Alexander Fleming leaving out a cheese sandwich to discover the penicillin mold. Another coincidence like this happened when a group of researchers moved into a new lab only to discover that the mice in their experiments were exposed to significantly less amounts of a specific bacteria. They noticed a connection between the amount of this gut bacteria present in the mice and the brain defect they were studying.

Your brain predicts where conversations will go next
Long before “autofill” began populating our text messages with incorrect words, our brains have been predicting words in conversation. And, much like text messages, if you are not paying attention your brain will just fill in a word it believes will come next based on prior experience. This vast database of experience with spoken language is, scientists believe, a major contributing factor to the evolution of human language.

New Study - BrainHQ shown to improve cognitive measures in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Up to 70% of patients living with MS report cognitive issues. A group of researchers at NYU ran a 135-person study to see if remote administration of brain training could benefit patients. They selected our BrainHQ
exercises because of its emphasis on speed of processing—a signature deficit in MS patients. To learn more about the study, read the press release
