Can improving reaction time slow down the onset of dementia?

One of the advantages of the Brain Gauge training platform is that the Speed drills help improve your reaction time. Improving reaction time might be associated with certain cognitive benefits and potentially delaying the onset of cognitive decline, including dementia. While dementia is a complex condition with multiple contributing factors, it does make us pause to wonder how much improving brain fitness can do to offset or delay the degradations caused by aging or aging related dementias. By the numbers, there are virtually very few, if any, instances reported of


How to biohack with the Brain Gauge

The Brain Gauge is a device that aims to provide insights into various aspects of brain health and function. It's designed to measure brain function metrics and track changes over time. Biohacking with the Brain Gauge involves using the device to gather data about your brain's performance and using that information to optimize your cognitive function. Here's how you can use the Brain Gauge for biohacking:

Baseline Measurement: Start by taking baseline measurements of your cognitive performance using the Brain Gauge. This will give you a starting point to compare


How to use the Brain Gauge training platform

The Brain Gauge has a unique training platform and perhaps the best way to introduce it is to simply start using it. If you have been using a Brain Gauge, you are familiar with the screenshot shown belowPicture1-6
Note that under "Testing options" the user can select "Start testing" or "Start training". The "Start Training" option is circled - this is the one you select.

Once you have selected the training option, another screen will appear, as depicted with the screenshot below.


Treating chronic pain with brain training?

Can the Brain Gauge be used to decrease pain or improve brain function?
For many years, people have found modest success with treating different forms of chronic pain with different types of tactile stimulation (vibration, electrical stimuli, etc.). Results from those studies (and there were quite a few) are both divergent in terms of results obtained from tactile stimulation and inconclusive. In our own work, we demonstrated a reduced effect of high frequency tactile stimulation (this means we delivered 150 Hz vibration to the skin at the same time as


Parallels between brain fitness and physical fitness

Brain Fitness is not that different from physical fitness and shares many similarities, despite targeting different aspects of health. Here are some ways in which brain training for brain fitness is similar to physical training for physical fitness are similar:

Goal of Improvement: Both brain training and physical training aim to enhance specific aspects of health and performance. Brain training targets cognitive functions like speed, accuracy, attention, and problem-solving, while physical training focuses on improving strength, endurance, and flexibility.

Adaptation: Both types of training rely on the principle of adaptation.

What is Brain training?
Brain training refers to a range of cognitive exercises, activities, or programs designed to enhance and optimize various mental processes, such as memory, attention, problem-solving, and reasoning. The primary aim of brain training is to stimulate and challenge the brain's neural networks

OR... Here we go again...

The post below was written a few years ago..but recent events in the news are prompting us to re-post it. After all, the people that this applies to are a few years older than when we first posted..

Basically, it comes down to the "boiling frog syndrome". All of these old people are saying that they are just fine. How does that relate to a boiling frog? Simple. When you toss a frog in a pot of cold water, it doesn't jump
