BrainHQ - Brain Training App Description

Train your brain with BrainHQ from Posit Science—the most rigorous program available for better brain health, and the only one backed by more than 100 scientific papers showing benefits. Now with new features that contribute to your brain fitness success!

 BrainHQ represents the culmination of 30 years of research in neurological science and related medicine. Top scientists from around the world helped to develop and test 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.

 No other brain fitness program can match BrainHQ in scientific proof. More than 100 publications from independent, randomized controlled trials have shown that the exercises and assessments in BrainHQ drive real change. These changes include: • functional changes, such as better memory and faster processing speed • real-world abilities, including safer driving and a lower chance of depressive symptoms • physical brain changes, like healthier white matter and more coordinated neurons. 
 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…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
 The BrainHQ 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.

App Reviews

  • Fun app, but horrible to navigate

    1
    By HonestGirl10
    I came across this app after reading a news article that said it’s one of the few brain apps that research has shown to be effective for its intended purpose. Different games within the app are fun to play and after limited use I believe they do improve my mental skills. In that regard I’d rate the app five stars. However, I rate it one star due to the frustrations involved with navigating through the different training sessions and getting the app to work like it should. One shouldn’t need to call an app’s tech support to get the audio to work on an iPad. Also very irritating is the subscription box that often continuously pops up and won’t go away when I try to launch a new game. Seems like the developers of this app got the hard part right by developing games that are entertaining and effective, but failed on the easy part of developing a user interface that facilitates easy navigation through the app. At times I wonder if this was done intentionally by thinking users might pay for the subscription in hopes that the user interface problems will go away under the paid subscription mode. Unfortunately I like the app enough that I’ll likely test this theory.

    There are tons of "brain games" out there but BrainHQ is the only program with real science behind it.

  • Mixed review

    By Lissa Jean
    I really like and appreciate the app! It does challenge me in the areas I really need the challenge. But I do agree with some of the comments I've read. It needs tweaking. The voice part of shovel before flower one drives me crazy, maybe that's part of my deficit, not sure, but it does. The facial recognition one I agree with the comments as well. But, all in all, I love the app and am grateful to have this tool to help me with My deficits. As for the charge, the more people that actual do support it, the more chances rather can improve the matters, just my thoughts.
  • How to play each level

    2
    By C3bh
    It would be a help if the instructions were more clear. It is difficult to play something when the instructions are not clear or the game just comes on and have to figure out which session is coming up to play. If decide to skip an exercise, the play starts completely over. Is this a glitch in the program? Automatically quit when this happens as you are telling me that what was done before has no meaning. The scoring is confusing. You take more points away than you give for a correct answer. Try to do that in the public school system and you would be in deep trouble. C3BH
  • Some activities better than others

    3
    By GradStude
    Some of the activities need a lot of improvement. The facial expression recognition activity is completely ridiculous and I highly doubt it would help anyone in any sort of real life situation. The people in the photographs are making overly exaggerated, forces facial expressions. This does little to capture the true psychology of emotion and micro expressions that people often miss. In fact, in some of the photos where people are supposed to be grimacing or making angry faces, you can see the "smile" in their eyes or that they are trying not to laugh. As other reviews have mentioned, the instructions are unclear on many of the activities. In general, most of the games could use minor tweaks and updates.
  • Great challenges and learning

    I really like this app and I am navigating my way through it. Some exercises are more challenging than others which I appreciate. There is an occasional time where I don't quite understand the instructions so I don't think they are all written well, but I've managed to get through them and maybe that's a challenge in itself. It's worth a try I would rather do this then play a nonproductive game.
