Train your brain with BrainHQ from Posit Science—the only brain training program clinically proven to improve memory, speed, and attention. Now with new features that contribute to your brain fitness success!
BrainHQ is a brain training program that really works. It’s built on the principles of “brain plasticity”—new science that shows that the brain is always capable of change and improvement. Top scientists from around the world provided their input for the BrainHQ exercises. The result: a training system that comprehensively improves brain function, from the most basic elements of perception through the most complex elements of memory, thinking, and decision-making.
What makes BrainHQ unique is that it is the only brain training program that has been shown to work in large-scale randomized clinical trials—the gold-standard for scientific results. BrainHQ’s exercises have been tested in studies by researchers from leading institutions, including the Mayo Clinic, the University of California at Berkeley, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. More than 60 publications have documented statistically and clinically significant results with the exercises in BrainHQ, including:
•Improves memory by 10 years of function
•Increases processing speed by over 130%
•Reduces the risk of decline in health-related quality of life and mood by over 30%
•Sharpens attention, improves reaction time, and reduces risk of driving accidents by 50%
All of this means that BrainHQ works—in laboratory studies, and in the lives of everyday people:
•"BrainHQ is a no-brainer must-have in my book…This training has expanded my visual, fine-tuned my audio and even my reflexes seem to be getting faster. BrainHQ is fun and gives me the challenges I need to keep my brain working out on a daily basis." - C. MacDonald
•"Only a few months into the BrainHQ exercises the difference is clear, this isn’t left to speculation, I saw drastic improvements in my capacity for word recall and my family has noticed a strong improvement." -A. Amitrano
And leading publications agree: “Our testers concluded that Posit's product—one of the few so far to undergo clinical trials and peer-reviewed research—had the firmest scientific grounding.” - Wall Street Journal
These proven benefits have inspired leading groups like PBS and the American Automobile Association (AAA) to partner with Posit Science to make the exercises available to their own members. And now they are available to you on your iPad!
BrainHQ delivers brain benefits in a way that’s easy to learn and fun to do. The app helps you set and achieve your brain training goals—so it not only works, it works for you.
•Exercises are organized into “challenges”—short courses that target specific brain processes and real-world benefits. Pick the challenges for the cognitive areas important for your life.
•Each exercise adapts to your performance and gets more challenging as your performance improves, just like a personal trainer for your brain.
•The training is designed to fit into your life. Train for just 5 minutes in your spare time, or do a complete workout in an hour.

Have been training with this program for a number of weeks! Not always consistently but I've made great progress in developing different aspects of my mental functions. Doing very well for my age.
Just started using this app and it looks great on the ipad. Looking forward to using this app everyday in hopes that it will increase the strength in my brain.
