Real science to believe in

BrainHQ is a brain-​training system built and tested by an international team of top neuroscientists and other brain experts. Unlike other brain-training programs, BrainHQ is proven to work—dozens of published papers (and counting) show real benefits from using exercises in BrainHQ. This research shows cognitive benefits (such as better memory and faster processing) as well as real-life benefits (such as safer driving and better hearing in noisy places). ​No other program has this level of proof.

Training that fits you

Getting started with BrainHQ is easy. All you need to do is sign up. Once that’s done, you can decide how to train. If you want, you can design your own training. Or you can sit back and let us select the best brain exercises for you. Plus, you can train for as little or as much as you want at a time—from just a few minutes up.

Courses and challenges

Are you training your brain to excel at work? Improve your tennis game? Hear better in crowded places? You can choose a BrainHQ course to meet your goal.

Personalized training

Personalized brain training takes the guesswork out. It sets a daily schedule just for you, based on your specific preferences and performance. You’ll train in the best exercises to make the most of your unique brain.

29 effective brain training exercises

BrainHQ’s exercises work out your attention, memory, brain speed, people skills, navigation, and intelligence. There are hundreds of levels of exercises. Each one automatically adapts to your skill level so that you’re always training at your “threshold”—the right level for your brain to make real improvements.

Detailed progress feedback

When you’re training, you want to know what you’ve done and how well you’ve done it. BrainHQ’s robust progress features show you how much you’ve trained, how much you have improved, and how you compare to others (if you want to know). You can also set email reminders, see what levels you have and haven’t done, and track your performance in each exercise.

Enjoying a faster, sharper brain 

People who regularly train with BrainHQ often see tremendous benefits in their lives. We’ve heard stories from all kinds of people about how BrainHQ has done everything from improving their bowling game, to enabling them to get a job, to reviving their creativity, to making them feel more confident about their future.
