“Executive processing is dependent upon the collective interplay of brain networks underlying fundamental cognitive skills. In ways, one’s executive processing is only as strong as one’s weakest cognitive skill. Cognitive training offers the most promising method for strengthening underlying cognitive networks, allowing one to increase overall executive processing ability!

However, not all cognitive training programs are alike! BrainRx is distinct in many ways from the variety of digital training programs available today. Foremost, BrainRx programs are delivered by a clinician who gives dynamic feedback throughout every training session. Further, BrainRx programs are based on the Cattell-Horn-Carroll theory of intelligence, a widely-accepted view of cognition and the theoretical foundation of modern day cognitive assessment. BrainRx is comprehensive; targeting and training seven key cognitive skills and multiple sub-skills. It is also highly intensive, including an average of 90 to 120 hours of training over several months.

We are now using MRIs to visualize the underlying changes in brain structure and function after BrainRx training. In one research study, we looked at underlying changes related to gains in auditory processing and found correlated changes in functional connectivity! In another study, we found normalization of key brain networks after training.

The dynamic feedback, thoroughness, and intensity of BrainRx cognitive training are keys to producing modifications of cognitive skill networks and the desired functional cognitive gains. It is certainly an exciting time to be in the field of cognitive training research.”
