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.

  • Expensive

    By Uro Onc
    Expensive for what you get
  • Instructions too vague

    By Prob child
    Instruction are too vague. Half way through the game, I understand what I am to go. Frustrating. Thinking of deleting game. Awful
  • Beta test?

    By Tom Tee
    Great idea, apparently good data behind it, but clunky navigation (being kind there...)and very poor directions especially re ‘right’ v ‘wrong’ answers - eg if you get the right answer but BHQ determines you were too slow, it’s the wrong answer. But this is not self evident. Customer support very poor. Research and other explanatory material seems quite robust, though.So near, yet so far.
  • Can’t play any more games

    By joepaulfred
    I downloaded this game after reading the description on the App Store. According to the description you get 1 free game a day. After 4days I can’t play any more games. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME
  • Help a improve reflexes.

    By Mary Rumore
    This app helps keep your mind sharp and your reflexes quick. It is really a challenge.
  • Love this App

    By Reggie 9
    I was really enjoying this app on my phone and my Mac book. All of a sudden there is a compatibility issue w/ safari? Wish I could get my money back.
  • Don’t buy it, it’s ridiculous trying to unsubscribe!

    By cyndog1
    Don’t buy, unless you want to feel manipulated by Apple again
  • Yashara Price

    By YasharaP
    I had a stroke four years ago, and I had to relearn everything: talking, walking, spelling, typing, cooking, counting money, I could go on, but you get the idea. Anyway, this is the best app I could find - and I’ve tried ALOT! Thank you, Dr Mercola and BrainHQ!
  • Overall Review

    By Hi-Mesa
    First, I wish there were more explanations. Why is the smaller score better. When can I try a different exercise? Do I have to get a perfect score first? What if I absolutely hate the first exercise? Finally, why are my beginning exercises different from those of my sister’s.?
  • Freezes up and can’t use. Waste of money. Do NOT purchase

    By SLW1894
    This game is a waste of money. Buyer beware. Freezes and can’t use. One stare is way too much.
