BrainHQ is a web-based cognitive training package that combines two earlier successful brain training programs: The Brain Fitness Program (for auditory processing) and InSight (for visual processing). Intended for all types of users – not only those diagnosed with cognitive deficits – BrainHQ targets five categories of cognition: Memory, Attention, Speed, People Skills, and Intelligence. The program contains 19 exercises that address each category and adapt to users’ skill level. It is also in the process of being updated with an additional module focusing on visual-spatial navigation skills. BrainHQ provides users with feedback about their progress and allows them to keep track of their scores over time and in comparison to other users. It was also released as an app for Apple devices.
