Fifty 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. That’s because a revolution took place in the 1980s and 1990s: We all learned how important physical exercise was for our overall health and well-being. Brain fitness is the next step in that revolution.

Just as you can exercise your abs, delts, 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. Brain HQ is a web-based brain training program based on the science of neuroplasticity, the ability to change and improve our brain throughout our lifespan. When it comes to brain fitness training, BrainHQ is best in class. Built by a team of top neuroscientists, with exercises proven in dozens of published studies to make real and lasting improvements in brain function, BrainHQ is your personal brain gym.

Exercises include:

  1. Memory Exercises. Memories are made up of what you sense. When memory fails, it’s not because you forgot how to remember -- it’s because your brain isn’t processing information very clearly. The Memory exercises can sharpen the brain’s ability to record what you see and hear so that you can create a crystal-clear memory that’s easy to recall.
  2. Attention Exercises. Does it drive you crazy when you can’t remember where you put your keys? You probably weren’t paying much attention when you set them down. Each of our Attention exercises is designed to help retrain the brain to focus its attention, so you feel more aware and less distracted.
  3. Brain Speed Exercises. When it comes to brain speed, every millisecond counts. How quickly your brain can process events around you determines how effectively you can react to and remember those events.
  4. People Skills Exercises. It can be hard to remember names and faces, to participate in conversations in loud places, to read people’s emotions effectively. But all these types of skills are real benefits when dealing with others -- whether you’re at a party or meeting new clients.
  5. Intelligence Exercises. With age, most people get wiser—but certain types of complex thinking get harder. When you have to manipulate multiple pieces of information quickly, you can get slower and more frustrated. With our Intelligence exercises, you can improve that skill to feel at the top of your game.

BOOK, SOFT-WIRED

We are in a “Brain Plasticity Revolution.” And for years, Dr. Michael Merzenich has been at the front of that revolution. He’s one of the scientists responsible for our understanding of brain plasticity – the notion that the brain can change itself at any age. In this, his first book, Dr. Merzenich explores this astonishing science often called "neuroplasticity.”

In Soft-Wired, Dr. Merzenich explains how the brain develops and grows throughout youth and early adulthood, and how positive and negative brain plasticity remodel the brain across the lifespan. Finally, he offers sound advice for how to evaluate your own brain -- and how your lifestyle may be changing it for better or worse -- and offers clear, specific, scientifically proven advice for how you can rejuvenate, remodel, and reshape your brain at any age.

While the book is filled with all of the scientific research and detail you would expect from this noted neuroscientist, it is personal and relatable. Merzenich’s goal is to help you understand the true nature of your plastic brain, and to explain how you can apply that knowledge in ways that enrich and strengthen – and increase the safety of – your own passage through life. Softcover, 230 pages;
