BrainHQ

Tufts Health Plan members can receive a 17% discount off the subscription price of the BrainHQ application offered by Posit Science. BrainHQ is the only online cognitive training program not just scientifically designed, but proven effective in over 70 peer-reviewed publications. Below is a description of BrainHQ from Posit Science:

50 years ago, going to the gym wasn't something the average person did. Now, it seems, everyone has a gym membership, or finds another way to exercise regularly.  We all have learned how important physical exercise is for our overall health and well-being. Brain fitness is the next revolution. Just as you can exercise your abs and quads, you can exercise your memory, attention, and more. As with physical exercise, brain exercise can help you improve your performance and feel your best.

Over time, the processing speed of the brain slows and the accuracy with which we process information from our senses declines. The BrainHQ application is designed to increase the speed at which we can reliably process information, improve the brain’s ability to make clear and strong representations of information and stimulate the machinery that produces brain chemicals that strengthen memory and enable learning.  By addressing these core issues, BrainHQ improves our ability to capture information quickly, accurately and remember better, helping us to lead more fulfilling and independent lives.

BrainHQ was designed for people who want to:

  • Improve their memory
  • Stay sharp and focused
  • Be at the top of their game
  • Stay physically active
  • Pay attention to fine details
  • Tackle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Think quickly on their feet
  • Be safe drivers
  • Improve their hearing and vision
  • Maintain close social connections
  • Find words on the tip of the tongue
