  1. Please avoid NEUROPLUS at all costs.

    It seems they have engaged in the act of charging customers more for the agreed to contact, and have completely shut down their services.

    I’ve tried contacting them multiple times in the past few months, only to have emails and voicemails ignored, or their voicemail was full.

    This company has turned into a fraudulent company.

  2. Wow, I hope that article wasn’t aimed at the average adhd mind, because I was way too overwhelmed to read all that knowing that by the time I got to the end that I wouldn’t’ve been able to grasp the entire library’s amount of info wrapped in that nice little package it was presented in. Too many points in which I needed to remember specific info on.
    I pride myself on how well I’ve trained myself in comprehension, by way of reading in certain ways & tips & tricks I’ve learnt along the way… and it makes me sad cause I feel like the info in this article *COULD* be super beneficial to me – but I can’t get through it to come to my own little summary & shortlist of which app/program(s) to start with in order of what fits me & my type best.

    I’ve spent enough time d/l’ing & deleting apps after a few weeks of trying them & finding out they aren’t for me so this article is def what I’ve been waiting for…just wish I found it sooner!
    I’m going to take screenshots of a few things to remind me just in case, But I’m hoping someone really smart & great time management skills (so much so that they can find themselves a space 20mins to help me with this):
    🙏🏻 😇** Can someone please summarise for me? ** ☺️ 🙏🏻
    Which brain training apps are pointless & which are worth giving a go? I don’t have any specific goals apart from the way in just wanting to improve myself. I’m foggy at best & I know I have a lot more potential that I’ve been displaying lately & it can be embarrassing not be sharp any more – I often trip over words & jumble up sounds because I’m just not “there” anymore.

    Anyway – quick background incase you need to know a bit to decide with apps might be better than not for my requirements.
    I was diagnosed 4yrs ago, cannot hold attention on anything to save my life. I have impulsivity up the wazoo, am prone to addiction even more so, & like a lot of others I have the usual depression, anxiety & BPD alongside the adhd. (Also social anxiety disorder. Actually that’s a lie might as well call it what it is right now – agoraphobia, the past 2yrs. Haven’t gone out the house since a panick attack when leaving the dentist one day in early jan 2018)

    This is way too long for me to proofread so I apologise for any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. I just hope it makes sense haha!

    Truly, I appreciate anyone who can help me.
    My email address [email protected] put the subject with something to do with brain training so I know who it is 😊

    P.s – I only have access to an iPhone, no computer. So keep that in mind when looking at which could help

  3. Here we are 5 years after the meta-analysis study regarding CogMed and we still don’t have a SCIENTIFICALLY clear picture of its efficacy (and skill portability) based on any sort of additional rigorous and scientific studies. Yet, here we also find ourselves with another article on ADDitude mentioning it and being somewhat Switzerland-like in its judgment.

    Another 5 years of this and the folks at Pearson won’t have to care whether a study that either confirms or refutes whether the claims made by CogMed are valid. They will have made enough money, regardless.

  4. LearningRx brain training was published in 6 major science journals in the last two years. Peer reviewed research included independent research, randomized controlled trials (to meet new medical research standards), pre and post MRI scans, and real-life transfer effects of brain training. LearningRx training is mostly one on one training, not digital. LearningRx training showed a 21pt IQ change in it’s first randomized controlled trial, but averages a 15 pt IQ change in a study of almost 18,000 clients.
