Brain Training 101: Why Brain Training Works

Scientists used to think that the brain was set in stone, that we were born with certain brain abilities and those abilities could not be changed or improved. Today we understand that this could not be farther from the truth. Here are relatively recent discoveries about the brain:

  • Throughout our entire lives, our brains can adapt, change and grow. Regardless of age, our brains are capable of finding new and better ways to reorganize neural connections and even create new ones.
  • These neural connections form the foundation of our cognitive skills. Cognitive skills are the core brain skills that make up IQ and determine how well we think, read, learn, reason, remember and pay attention.
  • Brain abilities and performance are never “set in stone.” Because the brain is always adapting and building, our ability to think, remember and learn is never static—it can always be upgraded and improved!

The brain’s ability to adapt and grow is called “neuroplasticity.” Neuroplasticity is the science behind brain training and the basis of the BrainRx brain training program.

Brain Training 101: How Cognitive Skills Help Us Think and Learn

Whether you’re reading a book, studying for a test, chatting with a friend or even driving a car, your brain is bombarded with information from all five of your senses. All this incoming information is processed through a set of core cognitive skills. Like cogwheels in a machine, these skills work together to move information into stored knowledge so you can access it later when you need it. Because these skills work together, if even one skill isn’t pulling its weight, it can keep your brain from fully grasping and processing incoming information. This, in turn, creates frustrating challenges in school, work, and life.
