I would like to draw your attention to the article “How to keep your mind young,” which was published a few weeks ago in the British magazine, The Spectator. In her easy-to-understand paper, the author skilfully explains a scientific discovery: our brain has the ability to change! She also refers to our Hawk Eye exercise and other BrainHQ exercises to help the public understand why they need to exercise their brain. She shows the public how to choose a brain training program that is science-based and proven to work in over 100 published studies—BrainHQ!

We are grateful to these independent authors who play a vital role in raising public and organizational awareness about brain health and fitness.

Please don’t hesitate to send us an email if you have questions or we can be of help to you in any way.

Kind regards,

Spatial awareness
Where are you right now? Perhaps you’re sitting in your living room or on the bus. Our brains help us find our way through spaces and avoid obstacles in a complex dance of sensory communication. New research suggests that the brain’s ability to rapidly sense the basic geometry of our environment is key to navigating our surroundings. Understanding this complex process could have far-reaching application in AI and virtual reality. Read about it here.

Post-stroke breakthrough
Imagine if you couldn’t cross the street safely, or detect food on half of a plate right in front of you. Around a third of people with a brain injury will suffer from debilitating neural deficits known as the “neglect syndrome.” In a new, groundbreaking study, researchers found that the intervention group who used BrainHQ made a significant improvement in spatial bias and functional ability, described as a “breakthrough result.” You can find out more here.

Autism profiles
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) covers a broad range of symptoms and levels of severity, meaning that it can be difficult to know what treatment is best. In one of the largest studies of its kind, the brain anatomy of over 1,300 individuals was examined, focusing on different factors, and comparing them with brain structure development to paint a picture of more detailed ASD profiles. The results could lead to more personalized treatment for ASD. Learn more about the study here.

Curb your appetite
We all know that overeating can have catastrophic consequences on our health. Making healthier choices and changing our lifestyles obviously help, but scientists now think that knowledge of brain circuits could assist in achieving our goals. Research is now suggesting that stimulation of certain neurons can control eating impulses. This research could make curbing your appetite a piece of cake! Find out more here.

Brain waves and whiskers
How our sense of touch develops is still unclear, but studying mice and their sense of touch through their whiskers could help us learn more. Researchers analyzing the brains of mice have found evidence to suggest that a sense of touch develops in utero. Despite the differences between mice and humans, there is good reason to believe the process is similar for us. Read 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!
