Cognitive Training

By improving the way we think, we can intentionally and measurably:

  • Improve global blood flow to the brain

  • Boost blood flow to key strategic regions such as the frontal lobes

  • Forge new connections and strengthen positive or weaken negative ones

  • Increase cortical thickness in regions such as the frontal and parietal cortices, and reduce age-related brain shrinkage

  • Improve the brain’s connective wiring by renovating the “insulation” of the long, extended fibers connecting brain cells

  • Achieve all of the above through fundamental change in the networks, cells and molecules of the brain, right down to modification of gene expression

These changes enhance thinking, memory, attention and mood in ways that greatly improve quality of life and our ability to adapt to life’s inevitable curve balls. Teaching behavior modification strategies, through cognitive training, can have a dramatic impact in helping people make better brain health choices.
