Brain Training Services in NC

Brain Training. Sounds intriguing. But what exactly is it? And does it really work?

Brain training is a type of mental exercise, carefully designed to stimulate the brain and make lasting changes in cognitive abilities. Brain training exercises feel like games. But there’s serious work going on to build cognitive skills. Skills such as attention, processing speed, short and long-term memory, auditory and visual processing, comprehension, logic and reasoning, and more.

Dr. Vicki Parker works with each person individually. Clients range from children who are struggling in school to very accomplished teens who want to excel even farther.  Adults benefit from brain training, too. They may be professionals looking for an edge at work or active seniors who want to improve their memory.

Brain training benefits anyone who wants to use the brain to its fullest potential. By doing new and novel tasks at a challenging level, then increasing the complexity and intensity of the tasks, you will build new networks in the brain. Those networks will enhance your ability to think. This change is known as neuroplasticity.

Brain training at The Brain Trainer is not the same as computer games that purport to aid memory. When conducted properly, brain-training exercises actually re-wire the brain, improving performance. Several studies in independent journals have confirmed the changes brought out through cognitive training.
