Find our comprehensive guide to doing research with BrainHQ here, and our comprehensive guide to using BrainHQ assessments here.
Participant compliance can be improved greatly by touching base with each of your participants one-on-one either in person or over phone at least once per week using our weekly check-in template.
You can share additional materials and curated information which includes scientific content geared toward laypersons, newsletters, podcasts, and videos, commonly encountered issues, and how to build rapport with your participants. A repository of additional videos are located here. These materials will set up your participants for success by helping them understand the program and motivating them to continue engaging with their training.
The scientific literature in our field has been published across many journals. We have compiled a shared online database of clinical trials in brain training. Note that this database includes most of the trial literature on brain training across various developers. If you only want to read clinical trials using BrainHQ software, then please enter ‘Posit Science‘ into the filter tag box on the left-hand side. Also note that a number of other tags exist (e.g., schizophrenia, healthy aging, stroke, MCI, TBI, far-transfer, ACTIVE). You can click to highlight these tags — again, making sure ‘Posit Science’ remains highlighted — to filter the database by the condition, outcome, or trial you’re interested in researching.
We have a slide deck on the basic and applied science of BrainHQ. If you would like to read about brain plasticity and BrainHQ’s theoretical framework more generally, we suggest starting with some reviews of brain plasticity (Buonomano 1998), then a review of how negative brain plasticity causes cognitive dysfunction (Mahncke 2006), then a more recent review uniting brain plasticity and therapeutic development (Nahum 2013), and finally a paper showing the neurological consequences of plasticity-based brain training in the rat model (de Villers Sidani 2010). Each of those is well-referenced and can provide an introduction into the deeper literature showing how to reorganize brain function with brain training.
