We continue to see a growing number of prestigious health institutions incorporating our cognitive training program, BrainHQ, into their health care settings.
Just joined are McLean Hospital (Harvard Medical School), Northwestern Medicine at Northwestern University, and the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami.
A week ago, Dr. Mary Kay Ross, the founder and CEO of the Brain Health and Research Institute (BHRI), also announced that she would be using BrainHQ in their clinical practices.
With this strong evidence and more than 150 peer-reviewed journal articles, I hope you can pause and reflect on the many lives that have been changed by BrainHQ in the past years. Please feel free to share our wonderful news! And remember, the BrainHQ is a great gift idea for loved ones.
Music to my ears

We are constantly surrounded by background noise; be it the gentle hum of a fridge, the sound of your neighbour’s TV, the soothing sound of wind and rain through the trees, or the hustle and bustle of a café. Our ears are always taking in information about the world around us. New research has shed light on how the brain extracts meaningful sounds from background noise.

Hits the spot
Did you know that a tiny “blue spot” in the brainstem, called the locus coeruleus, can affect whether our memory declines as we age? Using new methods and MRI scanning procedures, we can now visually access the locus coeruleus, which was previously very hard to observe in living people. This breakthrough will help us address learning and memory issues in old age, particularly Alzheimer’s.

Comas and consciousness
No one wants their loved ones to fall into a coma, but new research could help provide more insight into recovery chances. Using an advanced MRI technique, scientists have analyzed areas deep within the brain that are thought to be connected to consciousness. They found that these areas are disrupted in comatose patients. Further research could help determine which patients are likely to regain consciousness and which will remain unconscious or have permanent brain damage.
