Are you a Safe Driver? As we age, our reaction times lengthen, our field of vision decreases and so does our safety on the road. Studies funded by the National Institutes of Health and published by the Journal of the American Medical Association have clinically demonstrated the benefits of our BrainHQ driving cognitive training program.
Critical, life-saving benefits include cutting the risk of car accidents by as much as 50%, extending field of view by 200% and decreasing reaction time so drivers can stop 22 feet at 88km/h (55 mph). That's why we are trusted by the American Automobile Association (AAA) as well as many other distinguished health institutions and auto insurance firms across North America.
For as little as $28, it offers life-saving benefits that are priceless! Try the FREE "crash risk assessment" tool at www.dynamicbrain.ca/driving (takes a few minutes to complete).

Mystery of Gremlin-like Snack Cravings Revealed
Science points the finger to a specific part of the brain that we rely on to curb our snack cravings. New study conclusively links reduced activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with weakened self-control around mouth-watering but unhealthy snack foods. The remedy may well call for some extra brain training.

Quality Sleep is Vital for Brain Health
Given the barrage of high-tech pressures we face on a daily basis, the one constant that remains unchanged is our need for quality sleep. A recent Oxford University study associates poor sleep with brain shrinkage within the superior frontal cortex and a greater rate of atrophy across the frontal, temporal, and parietal cortices.
