Science of Brain Training with IQFriends
IQFriends is an application of mental training completely customized and designed by our team of neuropsychologists. It consists of games and workouts designed to help develop and maintain six cognitive areas of the brain: Memory, Speed, Logic, Numerical, Flexibility and Visual Perception.
What is cognitive training?
Cognitive training is based on the concept of neural or synaptic plasticity, which enables the nervous system to overcome the constraints imposed by genetics and adapt to environmental experiences and physiological demands throughout your life.
If we combine this with appropriate activities of synaptic plasticity, it is possible to train your brain for better performance. Exercising your brain by learning new things and overcoming new challenges can provide a more productive stimulus for neuroplasticity. This can help to prevent or offset the negative effects of degenerative diseases and ageing itself.
Playing and training with the IQFriends brain games stimulates neuroplasticity and translates into an improvement in cognitive ability and better brain health.
Train your brain like you train your body
Your brain strength is like your muscle strength. When you train your muscle it gets stronger.
For muscle strength this fact has long been proven and many people act upon the knowledge by training their muscles. For brain strength this fact has only in recent years been scientifically documented and only few people are acting upon it by training their brain.
But scientists all over the world agree that there is overwhelming evidence that mental stimulation boost cognitive performance. Numerous landmark studies have found that engaging in mentally stimulating activities throughout our lives can help keep our minds sharp. Several of the studies cite challenging, interactive games as one effective method to keep the brain challenged and agile.
One of the reasons for not training the brain is that many people do not know how to do it. In fact even scientists do not agree on the best ways to train the brain. The brain games of the IQ Friends are one way to train specific parts of the brain that will result in an improvement of the cognitive functions trained.
What benefits can be obtained by training on IQFriends?
Researchers used to believe that cognitive power was fixed after childhood. Over the last few decades, though, scientists have discovered that we can improve our cognitive abilities after childhood. IQFriends was founded with one simple goal: to offer people a way to become more intelligent while having fun!
Besides just improving overall intelligence, IQ Friends can help in delaying or preventing Alzheimer! Neuropsychologists recently discovered that Alzheimer's symptoms may be delayed and even prevented by a strong construction of cognitive reserve that can act as a shield against the occurrence of the disease. This cognitive reserve is built following a regular exercise program that focuses on different areas of the brain. This will provide the kind of training you need to create an effective shield against cognitive symptoms of Alzheimer's and other degenerative diseases.
IQFriends is especially recommended for two main reasons, first, because it offers a personal analysis of five key cognitive abilities that will determine your cognitive strengths and weaknesses. Also, thanks to this information, IQFriends recommends a series of workouts that provide exactly what your brain needs. It is the best way to start building a cognitive reserve that will help you maintain a healthy, active and productive lifestyle.
