LearningRx Celebrates Brain Awareness Week With Insight On IQ

Thursday, March 06, 2014

LearningRx Chattanooga is celebrating Brain Awareness Week March 10-16 by sharing a few scientific facts about IQ. Studies continue to show that the right type of brain training can increase IQ and actually make people smarter, said officials. 

“Many people still believe that you can gain knowledge, but you can’t gain intelligence,” says Michelle Hecker Davis of LearningRx Chattanooga.  "That’s a damaging myth because it leads people to think they have to 'settle' for the mental capacity they’re born with.  We see tremendous results every day that IQ can change. Our training helps people get faster, smarter, more efficient brains. That helps struggling students finally break through learning barriers, gives adults an edge in a competitive job market, and helps seniors avoid some of the mental effects of aging. It’s an empowering mental boost that can lead to vast improvements in everyday life.”

A study of test results for more than 2,500 LearningRx students from 2009 shows LearningRx brain training brought significant improvement, with students gaining an average of 14.9 IQ points. 

“That’s an amazing enhancement of intellectual ability,” says LearningRx founder, Dr. Ken Gibson. “A measurable jump of that significance brings obvious increases in terms of the speed, ease and ability to perform mental tasks. This ability for the brain to improve, at any age, remains one of the most important messages we need to spread during Brain Awareness Week.”

Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign to increase awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
