BrainHQ is a brain training system built and tested by an international team of more than 100 top neuroscientists and other brain experts. The exercises aren't only "scientifically designed"—more than 70 published papers (and counting) show real benefits from using them. No other program has this level of proof. Under the leadership of CEO Henry Mahncke and Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Michael Merzenich, our team of experts designs, tests, and refines online exercises that effectively address cognitive issues related to healthy aging as well as a broad range of other conditions.
