Published Research on BrainHQ and Vision and Hearing
You can have near-perfect eyes and ears, and still have trouble hearing and seeing. Why? Because the brain plays a major role in vision and hearing, too. The brain has to process the raw information that your eyes and ears deliver in order for you to make sense of that information. If your brain’s processing is slow or inaccurate, you may have trouble understanding what it is that you see or hear. And unfortunately, slower processing is a common side effect of aging.
Seven articles have been published showing that using BrainHQ exercises can improve vision and hearing by increasing processing speed (so your brain keeps up with the pace of information coming in), decrease fuzziness (so your brain makes a clear picture for you), and sharpening attention (so your brain chemicals pump and your focus improves). Among other things, these papers show that training with BrainHQ can improve:
- Neural timing in auditory temporal processing, with the result that people can hear better when listening to “speech-in-noise” (hearing someone talk with background noise, such as in a crowded place or on a very noisy street)
- Auditory processing and visual processing, even in people who have experienced some declines in those abilities
- The function of multiple visual processing areas in the brain
