Published Review Articles

Many publications from scientists don’t describe an experiment or data they looked at themselves; instead they review a series of papers on a topic to see what the research shows overall. Below is a list of review articles that include studies on BrainHQ exercises.

Information and citations for review articles

In general, these studies were conducted in cognitively healthy adults aged 65 and older, and in some cases, aged 50 and older. Where published studies make reference to clinical populations, it is for informational purposes only. BrainHQ is not intended to diagnose or treat any clinical condition.
