Imaging Research on BrainHQ
When brain function improves, it generally reflects a change in the brain itself. Parts of the brain can grow larger, neurons can act more quickly or in better coordination, and so on. Twelve imaging studies have taken a look inside the brain, and shown that there were measurable changes in the brains of people who used exercises in BrainHQ. This is important: these studies don’t just show that people do better on tests of cognitive function, nor do they rely on what people say about how sharp they feel. Instead, the brain imaging actually shows differences in the brain after training that often correlate to the improvements the people experience in their brain function.
- An EEG study showed that using a specific BrainHQ visual exercise – Visual Sweeps – can improve a brain biomarker for attention as well as improving working memory performance.2
- Another EEG study showed that using a set of BrainHQ visual exercises improved brain biomarkers for attentional allocation and capacity enhancement.3
- A brain imaging study showed that training with a selection of BrainHQ’s exercises changed the integrity of occipito-temporal white matter, which was associated with better problem-solving and reasoning.4
- fMRI data showed training-related activation in areas associated with orienting visual attention.5
