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.

BrainHQ App Reviews

  • Glitchy

    By Loy :-/
    It’s definitely glitchy. Some of the games have issues with the touch interface which is very frustrating. If notifications pop up from other apps while you’re using this, it takes off like it has a mind of its own!
  • Can be a source of frustration

    By Janner70
    This program is supported by research and recommended to me by my doctors to help my cognition. I have found it both tedious and frustrating. I try to approach it like taking medicine, but I still find myself giving up after a very short time. While I enjoyed Lumosity, I dread this. It would be more engaging if it started more at my level and increased difficulty gradually according to my improvements. I made the mistake of paying a year subscription and recently discovered it had renewed for another year.😩
  • So difficult but just what I need!

    By Solitary K
    As my memory diminishes and my brain processing time deteriorates, this exercise — though it sometimes literally stops my brain — is less daunting than when I started. I feel that I am slowly improving. Bravo to whoever created this wonderful series of exercises!
  • Needs work

    By Koprowsk
    BrainHQ has some good research behind it, but the sound quality on iPhone and iPad leaves a lot to be desired. Too often I do not do well games that involve recognizing sounds because the sound quality is poor.
  • A great exercise for the brain!

    By Hankstok
    I recommend it to all ages!
  • Mental aerobics

    By Smitty575
    If you have spend some time in a waiting room, you might as well get some mental exercise. Just like physical exercise try to get 30 minutes a day
  • Terrible Program. Don’t waste your money!

    By Slmimi567
    This app is so very over rated. The most boring I’ve ever seen. I have requested a refund but have been told Apple is unable to issue this. I’ve also contacted BrainHQ directly and they tell me i have to request the refund from Apple! What a ripoff.
  • Thank you

    By claudlove
    Thank you and I am looking to rearrange my brain that I had issues since young. Thank you ❤️🙏🏻
  • Don’t waste your money

    By johnwrowland
    Little more than a get rich quick scheme? Why pay $94 a year for something when there’s a boatload of cheaper apps? Let me know when there’s a one time $5.99 version because I saw nothing in the free version to tempt me. The equivalent of a bedroom treadmill doubling as a clothes rack.
  • Don't understand scoring

    By kat2009
    This is supposed to be the only app with proven effectiveness. I find it very frustrating to "do well". Could offer more encouragement! But my main problem with it is I just don't understand the scoring. The bar on the top shows explosions - why? Also that bar is distracting! And am I supposed to move on when the next level is unlocked, or only when I have achieved all the stars on the current level, or what???? I get very frustrated and put it away.
