Another year…another title.

It seems Tom Brady can’t stop winning Super Bowls.  At his age this is no small feat.  Over the years Post Science has highlighted the fact that Tom is an avid user of the BrainHQ exercises.  In fact, he even has a branded version of BrainHQ for his TB12 organization. Over the last week or…

The surgeon ended up removing large pieces of H.M.’s brain. The result: far fewer seizures, and…

The researchers refer to computer-based brain fitness programs and make the following statement: “There is limited but encouraging evidence that these so-called brain fitness software packages make a difference…

The Evidence for Brain Training – Seeing the Whole Picture
