Cognitive psychologist Dr. Amy Moore reveals lessons learned from training 101,000 brains at TEDx West Monroe conference event
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., January 7, 2022 / PRNewswire / – At an independently hosted TEDx event in West Monroe, Louisiana, cognitive psychologist Dr. Amy lawson moore took the stage to reveal the results of her brain training research. Her speech began with a candid story about her own son struggling to read and spell words, including his name, at the age of nine. After brain training, her son was accepted into gifted and talented language arts and was subsequently tested in college-level English.
Dr. Moore asks the question: “How is it possible that my son who once struggled to spell his own name could pass two English classes in college with an A at 14?” She reveals that her son received 9 months of one-on-one brain training at LearningRx and similar stories resonate with the global network of brain training centers.
Brain training, or cognitive training, is a broad term for the repeated engagement of mental tasks that aims to improve cognitive skills such as memory, attention, and visualization. There are “brain games” everywhere, but brain training is more than a game. To harness the brain’s ability to change through experience – a phenomenon called neuroplasticity – brain training must be intense, complex. , targeted, repeated and arguably delivered by a human. The LearningRx team has worked with over 100,000 children and adults in over 6 million brain training sessions.
Since 2015, hundreds of research studies have been published on brain training programs, and Dr. Moore’s name honors more than a dozen.
