Published Research on BrainHQ and Memory
Of all cognitive abilities, memory is one that feels particularly important to many of us. Having a sharp, effective memory makes people more confident—having memory lapses can leave them feeling insecure.To date, seventeen scientific papers—conducted by well-regarded researchers at respected universities in a variety of populations—have shown that using BrainHQ exercises can have a substantial impact on memory performance. Here are some highlights:
- The IMPACT study—a large study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Southern California—followed 487 people, and showed an average improvement of 10 years in auditory memory. Two smaller studies showed similar results.
- Multiple research papers have demonstrated “generalization” beyond trained tasks to standard memory tests. This is very important, and rarely shown for any other brain-training program. It means that the memory gains represent a real change in cognition, not just an improvement in a memory strategy.
- A pilot imaging study showed that using BrainHQ exercises increased activity in areas of the brain associated with memory.
