BrainTrain, Inc., developer of award-winning reading and brain-training software, has won the Mom’s Choice Award for its BrainTrain Memory Gym Primary Edition (PE). The three new BrainTrain Memory Gyms are designed to improve working memory in children, adolescents and adults. In addition to the award-winning Primary Edition, the company has released the BrainTrain Memory Gym AE for adolescents and adults with cognitive impairments, and the Memory Gym Challenging Edition (CE) to help high-functioning adults stay sharp and focused as they age. By stimulating the brain to build new neuronal connections, the BrainTrain Memory Gyms strengthen not only working memory, but also processing speed, attention, response control, and general reasoning - the basic cognitive skills people need for academic and life success. Based on the science of brain neuroplasticity, the BrainTrain Memory Gyms fundamentally change the way the brain processes information.
To make the exercises even more effective, the Memory Gyms can be used in conjunction with the NeuroSky Mindwave device to enhance the training. By training relaxation and alertness, this optional feature can help the user achieve a more receptive learning state while he does the exercises.
The BrainTrain Memory Gyms are fun with a serious purpose. Research shows that people with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, or mild cognitive impairment, suffer from deficits in working memory. Working memory, the brain function that keeps information “online” while at the same time manipulating and using it, is vital for tasks like performing math calculations, following a story line, remembering the rules of a game, staying on-task, and following directions. Working memory deficits impact people’s ability to stay focused in the classroom or the workplace, participate in group activities, comprehend what they read, work ind
