Brain Training that works
Built on serious science
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
It can fit into your life
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.

- 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!)

Two ways to train your brain
BrainHQ has 29 online exercises that work out attention, brain speed, memory, people skills, navigation, and intelligence.
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
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.
