Is This For Me?
For a broad brain training experience - the best of what BrainHQ has to offer, and a set of exercises that configures automatically to your needs - just select the personal trainer and start. There’s no need to do anything else.
However, to match the brain exercises and the weekly schedule used in specific research studies, the links in this section will explain how to configure BrainHQ to match those studies.
Matching the ACTIVE Study (healthy aging)
The ACTIVE study used a brain exercise which was (at that time) called “speed training.” Posit Science worked with the scientists who invented speed training, and updated that exercise - now called “Double Decision” - so that it works on the web and mobile devices as part of BrainHQ. You can read about the ACTIVE study here.
In the ACTIVE study, people trained for 2 hours per week, broken up into two 60 minute sessions, and used a single exercise (Double Decision).
To set up BrainHQ to match the ACTIVE study:
- Set your weekly goal to 2 hours per week
- Create two training reminders on two different days
- Select the Double Decision exercise and work through all of the levels
Matching the IMPACT Study (healthy aging)
In the IMPACT study, people trained for 5 hours per week, broken up into five 60 minute sessions, and used a set of six auditory exercises. You can read about the IMPACT study here.
To set up BrainHQ to match the IMPACT study study:
- Set your weekly goal to 5 hours per week
- Create five training reminders on five different days
- Set your Personal Trainer to focus on Auditory Processing and work through all of the levels
Matching the chemobrain studies
In these studies, people trained for between 60 and 160 minutes per week, broken up into 1-4 sessions of 40-60 minutes each, and used a set of five visual exercises.
To set up BrainHQ to match these studies:
- Set your weekly goal to 2 hours per week (or as little as 1 hour per week, or as much as 2 hours and 40 minutes)
- Create 1 to 4 training reminders on different days, depending on how frequently you want to train
- Set your Personal Trainer to focus on Visual Processing and work through all of the levels
