We have some amazing news! On Thursday, November 16th, the results from research funded by the National Health Institute on brain training and dementia was published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Translational Research and Clinical Interventions after completing a rigorous peer-review process by independent scientists.
The study compares three types of brain training and one of them is the very specific “speed of processing” exercise, exclusively available as Double Decision in BrainHQ. Only people who trained on the speed of processing exercise reduced their risk of dementia by an average of 29% and those who trained more than 13 hours, cut their risk by almost half. Read more.

Alzheimer’s severity linked to brain glucose levels
Understanding how and why Alzheimer’s affects different people in different ways is a medical mystery that we are getting closer to solving. Scientists have now made a connection between higher brain glucose levels and severity of Alzheimer’s symptoms in patients. Find out more about how a brain’s ability to break down glucose is connected to the plaques and tangles associated with this neurodegenerative disorder, here
Retraining your brain to manage chronic pain
Chronic pain affects how our brains work as much as our bodies. Being able to retrain our brain to compensate how our bodies interact with the world isn’t just possible, it is now a codified method for dealing with certain types of chronic pain. The Feldenkrais method focuses on retraining your brain to manage how your body moves in order to alleviate as much pain as possible. Read about one person’s experience with this method, here
