July 2 is I Forgot Day
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., July 2, 2019 (Newswire.com) - July 2 is I Forgot Day, and LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the world’s largest personal brain training company, is sharing the results of its work on memory training for seniors.
“When seniors come to a LearningRx Brain Training Center, we start with a cognitive skills assessment to determine which skills are weak,” explains LearningRx Chief Research and Development Officer Tanya Mitchell. “Cognitive skills are the foundational tools we use to think, learn and remember. They include logic and reasoning, auditory and visual processing, memory, attention and processing speed. For most seniors, we find that memory and processing speed are the weakest cognitive skills, although other cognitive skills are often affected.”
According to Mitchell, once the weak brain skills are identified, they can be targeted with intensive one-on-one brain training. Unlike digital brain games, personalized brain training uses customized exercises and incorporates immediate feedback, intensity and loading, among other features, to work on brain skills.
So, what’s the impact of LearningRx brain training on adults aged 50 and older?
- Among 262 clients over the age of 50, the most dramatic improvements were seen in working memory (also known as short-term memory), long-term memory, processing speed and IQ.
- Working memory improved an average of 25 percentile points following LearningRx brain training.
- IQ scores improved by an average of 19 standard points after LearningRx brain training.
