BrainHQ - Brain Training Exercises

By Posit Science

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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 110 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 and iPhone!

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.

•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.

BrainHQ is a free download, and includes a core set of exercises that are available for free.

Not put together well...

I saw the same problems others have experienced. Once I tapped "sign up" via e-mail, all I was asked was my first & last name and my e-mail address, no password. When I returned to App Store to reach support (could not locate a way to spaces from inside the app), I was taken to the online login. I knew I had no password so, I tapped "create" and input again, this time asking for a password to be created. Well, that took me to the department of redundancy department, in that it stated that this "user" had already been created. Tried again to login, this time because no password was input, I was given the opportunity to "create a new password", used the same one just created and got in - for all that was worth - 0, that's right! A big fat ZERO! Nothing useful or supportive there!

That first challenge for speed & memory is very confusing. I see the 3 butterflies in color and distinction, in the order flashed on the screen. The test, however, gives 3 "dots" with a shadow of a butterfly, each a bit different, but not discernible enough to recognize the difference between a Swallowtail and Monarch, etc. sometimes I'm "very fast" other times not and I'm simply GUESSING because I figured out immediately, the goal was not to tap according to the pattern of which butterfly, according to its placement on the screen was first, second, third. This is NOT good training for MY brain! 😳


This app works when I want my training on the go! Been playing consistently for weeks and I can really tell the difference. I don't see how some people don't see the benefit, they might have played twice and gave up of something... Some games on the app don't work as well as the computer version but I just play the ones that work fine ( which is most) then do the others on the computer!

Superior brain training than others.

The app may not be as polished as others. But it offers so much more than the typical quick thinking and working memory fun arcade style games.

The audio training is awesome, I can see an improvement in understanding foreign languages I'm learning.

intonations, accents and words are becoming clearer. Great product. Posit-science knows what their doing.

If you've read "the brain that changes itself" you'll understand posit science is probably the leaders in brain improvement exercises and they seem truly focused on getting results not just building an arcade.
