Enhancing Performance

A happy diverse business team meeting. Group working. Work.

The Good News of Brain Science

Neuroplasticity is the nervous system's capacity to modify its structure and function throughout life. The good news of modern neuroscience is that through well-directed, intentional effort, we can rewrite our brains to be stronger, more resilient and more efficient.

Cognitive performance and emotional well-being can be significantly strengthened by adopting practices that can result in significant, measurable brain changes and improvements. In addition, the brain’s ability to grow, change, rewire and repair means activities with challenge, novelty or variety reveal potential for dynamic gains in performance. A healthy brain, optimized to function at its best, makes every aspect of life better.

Armed with a new understanding of the brain’s lifelong upward potential—and our ability to affect it—means that better brain health and performance can be achieved at the population level, and in turn can lead to transformational worldwide change.

Cognitive Training

Research has demonstrated that by improving the way we think, we can intentionally and measurably change our brain and enhance thinking, memory, attention and mood in ways that greatly improve quality of life and our ability to adapt.

Precision BrainHealth

A just-completed BrainHealth® Project trial adapted proven protocols into a methodology that combines live virtual coaching with personalized training through an app-like online platform. The limitless scalability of this approach means that people everywhere can have access to transformational science.

Reasoning

We navigate a complex world to arrive at solutions that meet our purpose. Reasoning research investigates how people cope with complex conditions, abstract meaning, interrogate possibilities, and ultimately arrive at solutions.

Judgment and Decision Making

The frontal lobe integrates various processes essential to independent thinking – leading researchers to investigate how this region can best be engaged to strengthen decision-making abilities.

Neuroplasticity Means Our Brain Can Change and Adapt

We can rewire our brains to be stronger, more resilient and more efficient across the entire lifespan. By improving the way we think, we can intentionally and measurably change our brain and enhance thinking, memory, attention and mood in ways that greatly improve quality of life and our ability to adapt.
