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!
Specific protein boosts memory and learning
Thank you,Frieda Fanni
DynamicBrain Inc. is the Canadian partner of Posit Science Corporation providing brain fitness program BrainHQ in English and French.
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.

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.
