COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., January 5, 2018 – New research published in Nature Communications has found that adolescents’ brains react more responsively to receiving rewards.

This strong reward system can be used to make learning easier. It’s something that LearningRx, the world’s largest one-on-one brain training company, has been putting to work in their personal brain training programs for decades.

In the study, which used MRI scanners, researchers found that if the adolescent received useful feedback, the corpus striatum was activated.

We've got plenty of research to demonstrate the effectiveness of our one-on-one brain training programs that utilize rewards throughout our client's personal brain training program.

Tanya Mitchell, LearningRx Chief Research and Development Officer

“Immediate feedback is one of the seven key ingredients of effective brain training, along with targeting, loading, sequencing, intensity, practice and a one-to-one trainer-to-student ratio,” says LearningRx Chief Research and Development Officer Tanya Mitchell. “We’ve trained more than 100,000 brains over the last three decades and have found that instant, effective reinforcement and adjustments keep training focused and intense.”

According to Mitchell, most of the students who have gone through personal brain training see effects that transfer to real life in terms of grades, confidence, behavior and how long it takes to do homework. In fact, the results of nearly 18,000 adolescents (average age 12.3) who went through LearningRx personal brain training showed that IQ scores jumped an average of 15 points after students completed a LearningRx program.

“We’ve got plenty of research to demonstrate the effectiveness of our one-on-one brain training programs,” says Mitchell. “From our biennial Client Outcomes and Results Report to numerous studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, our results can be researched and analyzed.”

LearningRx even has its own research arm, the Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research (www.gibsonresearchinstitute.org). The Institute conducts empirical research on LearningRx cognitive training programs and assessments and communicates the latest research findings to the education and cognitive science communities.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
