Recovering Brain Health
Recent developments and discoveries in the area of neuroscience have shown that regular brain fitness training can provide considerable benefits to people of all ages who have experienced cognitive decline due to disease, trauma or chemotherapy. Read about how people with Alzheimer's, ADHD, Dementia, MS, Parkinson's and chemo fog can use CogniFit to improve their cognitive health.
ADHD & ADD
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders that develop in children. Children with ADHD experience impaired functioning at home, at school, and in relationships with their peers. If untreated, the disorder can produce long-term adverse effects.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) affects older people's memory, thought and behavior. AD progresses inexorably, causing individuals with the condition to gradually forget knowledge acquired throughout life and interfering with recall of even the simplest among everyday activities.
Multiple Sclerosis & Cognitive Fatigue
The subsequent brain damage ultimately results in long-term disability. Because the disease can cause multiple sites of damage throughout the central nervous system, patients will experience a wide variety of symptoms. One of most common is impairment of cognitive ability.
Chemo Fog And Chemo Brain
It is a well known fact that people who receive chemotherapy for cancer have a higher risk of developing cognitive impairment in later life than those who have never undergone chemotherapy. Patients who have been treated with higher doses of chemotherapy have a higher risk than those treated.
The term dementia, as used in diagnostic contexts, refers to the decline and loss of cognitive function (for example, short-term and long-term memory, attention, executive function and reasoning) that may accompany a wide and complex range neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Lewy Bodies Diseases (for example, Parkinson's), demyelinating diseases (for example, Multiple Sclerosis), or conditions such as alcoholism and HIV (AIDS).
Cognitive Training With CogniFit Boosts Reading Skills In Dyslexic Students
When dyslexic college students trained with CogniFit, their brain activity, working memory and reading performance were shown to increase significantly, and results lasted up to six months after training.
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is characterized primarily by the affect it has on motor functions; its symptoms include trembling, stiffness of limbs, slowness of movement and general postural instability. The disease usually affects people over the age of 50. Early symptoms of PD are subtle and occur gradually.
