LearningRx reviews oppositional behavior & academics study...

Mar 7, 2017 by

A survey of parents of 226 school-age children who had been previously identified as having oppositional behavior and academic difficulties, found that many reported significant improvements in behavior and academics following LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) personal brain training. The results have been published in LearningRx’s 48-page 2016 edition of “Client Outcomes and Research Results,” which can be downloaded here:http://www.learningrx.com/our-programs/learningrx-results/. The study consisted of three groups: 77 students who completed 60 hours of ThinkRx cognitive training; 69 students who completed 120 hours of ReadRx cognitive training, and a control group of 80 students who didn’t undergo any training. The results showed: Both treatment groups saw a reduction in academic difficulty The control group saw an increase in academic difficulty Both treatment groups improved on ratings of oppositional behavior The control group’s ratings of oppositional behavior worsened The original dissertation, “The Real-Life Benefits of Cognitive Training” by Edward J. Jedlicka can be found...

Study: Development of Executive Functions

Feb 14, 2017 by

Abstract Executive functions refer to top–down processes utilized in goal-directed behavior. Executive functions and academic achievement relate robustly, from early childhood through adolescence. Executive functions and their neural networks appear to be malleable, and environments can support their development. Varied approaches, including educational curricula, structured physical exercise, and computer-based training, can improve executive functions. The intervention work suggests that children who are most “at-risk” demonstrate the largest gains, but evidence of far transfer to academic achievement or other behavioral outcomes that are important to schools is at this point only promising. The review highlights developmental considerations for measurement and intervention, and discusses implications for schools in supporting children’s development of executive functions. Policy implications of the scientific findings suggest strategies for providing environments that foster the development of executive functions. Development of Executive Function_mentions...

What’s LearningRx? Watch the video!

Nov 23, 2016 by

What is LearningRx personal brain training and why does it work? LearningRx one-on-one brain training focuses on a set of seven cognitive skills that allow us to learn easier, think faster, and perform better: http://www.learningrx.com. This video explains what these skills are and how they affect our ability to perform even the simplest tasks. Hear first-hand what LearningRx graduates and their parents have to say about our program. “If you want to gain physical endurance, you exercise with intensity,” says Christina Ledbetter, PhD, neurologist and research fellow at LSU Health Sciences Center. “If you want to gain brain function, you exercise your brain with intensity. It’s that feature of the LearningRx program that most impresses me. We see these great results because we train intensely.” To read the research and results on thousands of LearningRx clients, visit http://www.learningrx.com/results. Watch the video here:...

Brain training to combat stress

Nov 5, 2016 by

Research from Tel-Aviv University indicates that a new imaging technique might help people self-regulate their emotional responses. The tool provides feedback on electrical activity in the amygdala, which regulates things like fear and stress. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/312877.php Other types of brain training, such as LearningRx’s one-on-one cognitive skills training, has been shown to be effective for a number of things. Past studies have shown it to increase IQ, strengthen a variety of cognitive skills and increase confidence. Visit www.LearningRx.com to learn...

LearningRx RCT accepted by Medical News Today

Sep 29, 2016 by

“Much more than ‘brain games”: Clinician-delivered cognitive training improves multiple cognitive skills and general intelligence in children” The results of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) support the efficacy of LearningRx’s ThinkRx personal brain training in improving cognitive skills and IQ scores in students ages 8 to 14. The study showed statistically significant generalized improvements in six cognitive skills – associative memory, working memory, long-term memory, visual and auditory processing, logic and reasoning, and processing speed – as well as a 21-point mean increase in overall General Intelligence Ability (GIA) testing scores, an established measure of IQ....
