LearningRx – Brain Training – Study Showed Personal Brain Training Results Far Surpassed Digital Brain Training
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – A Randomized Control Trial (RCT) testing LearningRx’s (www.LearningRx.com) ThinkRx personal brain training program has been completed and the results show significant gains in logic & reasoning, as well as improvement in working memory and three of four math attitude measures. 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/.
In the study, 225 high school students were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: ThinkRx, digital training or study hall (control) in a school setting for a 15-week training period. Analysis of the results revealed significantly higher scores for the treatment groups compared with controls on working memory and three of four math attitude measures. The pre- and post-testing scores for logic & reasoning were the most significant. While the control group and digital brain training remained virtually unchanged, the group who underwent LearningRx’s one-on-one brain training had significantly higher scores. The study, “The Efficacy of the LearningRx Cognitive Training Program: Modality and Transfer Effects,” was published in the Volume 84, Issue 3, 2016 Journal of Experimental Education: Learning, Instruction, and Cognition. The three lead researchers were Oliver Hill, Zewelanji Serpell and M. Omar Faison.
“LearningRx programs are based on 35 years of research and input from a team of psychologists, educators, speech and language pathologists, and occupational therapists,” says Tanya Mitchell, Vice President of Research & Development for LearningRx and co-author of “Unlock the Einstein Inside; Applying New Brain Science to Wake Up the Smart in Your Child” (www.UnlockTheEinsteinInside.com). “With 95,000 students having graduated our brain training programs, we have plenty of data for independent researchers to study our unique cognitive training methodology and results. We not only encourage independent research, but we also actively seek it out. We are eager to share our results, and independent research helps validate our work among the scientific community in an industry that is still relatively young, and therefore under constant scrutiny. It’s part of the reason we created the Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research (www.gibsonresearchinstitute.org).”
