We are absolutely thrilled to have BrainHQ showcased at the Canadian Museum of Nature's Brain The Inside Story special exhibition in Ottawa! Backed by more than 100 published scientific papers, brain training by BrainHQ shows benefits from cognitive skills (like better memory and faster processing) to real-world abilities (like safer driving and a lower chance of depressive symptoms) to physical brain changes (like healthier white matter and more coordinated neurons).

If you are an Ottawa resident or visiting Canada’s Capital, please join us on June 9th and 10th for an interactive demonstration of our program and discover more of what this amazing Museum offers you!

What your Estrogen Levels say about Alzheimer’s
There’s no doubt menopause brings with it a whirlwind of changes at the deepest of levels! With recent clinical studies now linking it to Alzheimer’s disease too, maintaining a good balance of estrogen levels may become more important than ever before. Learn more here. But that’s not all, a positive outlook helps too. Find out here.

Fight or flight brain switch found!
Shedding light on our primal instincts, a new study isolates the brain circuitry that makes the decision to fight or take flight when faced with danger. Research findings show promise not only in helping individuals overcome symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder but also have the potential of helping those living with anxiety, pho-bias and addictions. Learn more about shifting from paralysis and fear to boldly confronting challenges head-on here.

Holography edits brain activity: aids blind to see and paralyzed to feel touch!
Discover mind-altering research techniques harkening back to the space age technology popularized on Star Trek! Using holographic projections on targeted brain cell neurons, neuroscientists at UC Berkeley are copying actual brain activity patterns that simulate sensations of feeling, sight or touch. The goal for this technology is to enable the control of prosthetic limbs or even replace lost sensations after peripheral nerve damage. See fasci-nating study details here.

Lower addiction risks with new pain relief medication in sight
Research findings show how brain cells respond differently to opioids, such as morphine and heroin or to synthetic drugs such as fentanyl than they do to the human body’s natural endorphins. A key variable relates to the speed with which opioid drugs take effect, as faster speeds correlate with higher addiction risks. Learn more about findings on developing safer pain relief medication here.

How blood sugar problems affect brain mood
Diabetic participants in a study led by Iowa University showed higher activity levels on the right side of the brain, which is connected with depression and negative emotions. Study results suggest these negative feelings may be due to problems in regulating blood sugar levels which are known to spike when exposed to high stress lev-els. Read study details 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! Learn more and try an exercise.
