BrainHQ is your online headquarters for working out your brain. Think of it as a personal gym, where you exercise your memory, attention, brain speed, people skills, intelligence and navigation instead of your abs, delts, and quads. Just as our bodies require care and exercise over the course of life, so do our brains. BrainHQ provides the exercise your brain needs to be at its sharpest.
Built on serious science
(this is good stuff)
The BrainHQ brain-training program represents the culmination of 30 years of research in neurological science and related medicine. It was designed by an international team of neuroscientists, led by Michael Merzenich—a professor emeritus in neurophysiology, member of the National Academy of Sciences, co-inventor of the cochlear implant, and Kavli Prize laureate.
Cognitive training that's tailored to you
(since no two brains are the same)
Changing your brain takes some work—so while the BrainHQ exercises are sometimes fun, they can also be difficult. But they always give a useful, meaningful workout to your unique brain. Using a special algorithm, each exercise adapts in difficulty as you work so that you always train at the optimum level for you—where you are most likely to improve your performance.
It can fit into your life
(even if you are busy)
It takes less than five minutes to do each BrainHQ level, so you can use it in tiny bites or long blocks,
depending on your schedule. Plus you can use BrainHQ on almost any computer or mobile device,
so you can take it on the go. If you want, you can set up personal training goals and have BrainHQ
send you training reminders when you want them.
Try a few exercises
(so you know what they're like)
Want to try an exercise? Click the START button!
You'll notice that the exercise gets a little harder if you're doing well, and a little easier if you're having trouble. Each exercise adapts to you.
Training in each level takes less than five minutes. (If you stick with BrainHQ, you'll repeat that level several times. Repetition is important for brain change!)
To try different exercises, choose an icon below and click START again.
If you want, you can have BrainHQ tell you exactly which exercises to do, and in which order. The personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continually measures your
performance and serves up the exercises that are right for you.
Or if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your
personal interests, mood, and schedule.
The cognitive benefits are proven
(It really works!)
More than 100 published scientific papers show the benefits of BrainHQ exercises and assessments. Most of these were independently conducted by scientists at respected universities, such as the University of California, Stanford, and Johns Hopkins. Of course, every study is conducted on a different group of people, and individual results vary. Click any benefit below to learn more about the studies behind the benefit.
