We are thrilled to announce that the National Cancer Institute has selected BrainHQ for inclusion in its cancer survivorship resources. Many cancer survivors notice changes in their cognitive function; often called “chemobrain”, now a well-recognized condition. Chemobrain can affect attention, processing speed, and memory, as well as multitasking and organizational skills. For recommendations from experts about chemobrain, please click here.

As always, we are counting on our thousands of newsletter readers to help us with spreading the word. If you are a cancer survivor, a caregiver, or working in a cancer-related institution, please contact me. Together, we can make a significant difference for millions of people who live their lives with no quality.

And don’t forget your brain workout!

Thank you,

Specific protein boosts memory and learning
A protein called “Nertin” was known to be essential for the development of an infant’s brain to make connections between brain cells. Now scientists discovered its key role in the adult brain's hippocampus, an area that is involved in memory and learning. Learn more here.

Researchers may stop Parkinson's by 'cooling off' brain
Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide. This disease is characterized by the loss of brain cells that produce dopamine and is accompanied by chronic inflammation in the brain. In a recent study conducted in mice, scientists identified a molecule that they believe was effective in blocking the disease from advancing further. Read more here

How does working memory works and who is right!
Scientists agree that working memory is critical to just about everything the brain does. They seem to also agree that problems with working memory are a common symptom of brain disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. But they strongly disagree on “How working memory actually works!” Learn more here. Also learn about different types of memory here.

Brain signature of depressed mood
In a recent study, researchers from the University of California San Francisco and Posit Science (the maker of our program BrainHQ) have identified what appears to be a signature pattern of brain activity when people are experiencing anxiety and depressed mood. Learn about this study here

Our brains are built to retain more information
In the last few million years, the human brain has tripled in size. This can be explained by the cultural brain hypothesis. The theory relies on the idea that brains expand to store and manage more information. As our society continues to evolve, based on this theory, what are the limits to how large the brain can grow?

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!
