BrainHQ App Description

Train your brain with BrainHQ from Posit Science—the most rigorous program available for better brain health, and the only one backed by more than 100 scientific papers showing benefits - including the breakthrough NIH-funded ACTIVE study. Now with new features that contribute to your brain fitness success!

 BrainHQ represents the culmination of 30 years of research in neuroscience and brain health. Top scientists from around the world helped to develop and test the BrainHQ exercises. The result: a training system that comprehensively improves brain performance, from the most basic elements of perception through the most complex elements of memory, attention, and cognitive function.

 No other brain fitness program can match BrainHQ in scientific proof. More than 100 publications from independent, randomized controlled trials have shown that the exercises and assessments in BrainHQ drive real change. These changes include: • cognitive improvements, such as better memory and faster processing speed • real-world improvements, including safer driving and improved quality of life • physical brain changes, like healthier white matter and more coordinated neurons. 
 All of this means that BrainHQ works—in laboratory studies, and in the lives of everyday people:

 •"BrainHQ is a no-brainer must-have in my book…This training has expanded my visual, fine-tuned my audio and even my reflexes seem to be getting faster. BrainHQ is fun and gives me the challenges I need to keep my brain working out on a daily basis." - C. MacDonald

 •"Only a few months into the BrainHQ exercises the difference is clear, this isn’t left to speculation, I saw drastic improvements…and my family has noticed a strong improvement." - A. Amitrano

 And leading publications agree: “Our testers concluded that Posit's product—one of the few so far to undergo clinical trials and peer-reviewed research—had the firmest scientific grounding.” - Wall Street Journal
 The BrainHQ app helps you set and achieve your brain training goals—so it not only works, it works for you.
 Each exercise adapts to your performance and gets more challenging as your performance improves, just like a personal trainer for your brain.
 The training is designed to fit into your life: train for just 5 minutes in your spare time, or do a complete workout in an hour. 
BrainHQ is a free download, and includes a free exercise every day.

App Reviews

  • Finally get it

    By EarningsBarrage
    This app actually helps develop your brain’s capabilities. I thought brain games were a waste of time. This one measures how you are improving and makes you do things that it first make your brain hurt and then hum.
  • I would give it five stars.

    By Freestyle Diva
    It’s a great app except the screen only works from left too right. Not up and downward. I have an IPhone normally I can just simply turn my phone in any direction🤷🏽‍♂️ I do not have that option, also some of the brain trainings the items are way too small too view.
  • Excellent Resource!

    By MaryDun
    Thanks to genetics and a serious auto accident with a semi (which wasn’t my fault, lol), my brain needs all the help it can get. Thank you for providing this great resource that I frequently use!!!
  • Hard to use

    By Susan1700
    Many of the challenges are good but there are some that just don’t work .. tracking the fish is impossible . When you tap on the fish you are following they occasionally react but generally don’t . I agree with the other reviewer. It’s not clear when you have completed a level and when and how you are supposed to move on to the next . I bought this for a year and it was quite expensive .. I would expect a much better program for my money .. it’s very helter skelter . But ... I will say again , not a bad start , many of the challenges are good .
  • Great Brain Training

    By underwaterbrother
    Great mental training to start the day and key up the senses. I can always tell the difference when I don't use it in the morning.
  • price

    By Saamrand
    the price is very high, please add lifetime price and discount.
  • Helps calming down

    By Worse than Windows App
    Im about a month into doing regular training so I can’t be sure of the benefits with increased brain training I guess results might need more time however it helps me distract from daily stress of life
  • Great

    By MireyaInParis
    Challenging. Five Stars. Once I have some income I will see if I can purchase. Those who can buy, you won’t regret.
  • Better on PC than iPhone

    By Shadow1152
    There are good games that become challenging as you level up. However some of them are not optimized for an iPhone screen. They are easy to see on a PC, but unable to be easily read or seen on a smaller screen.
