Leaders in cognitive stimulation

The cognitive stimulation therapy program from CogniFit makes it possible to activate, exercise, and strengthen important cognitive abilities (attention, memory, executive functions, planning, perception, etc.), and the components that make up these skills.

This cognitive stimulation therapy program is based on cognitive reserve and neuroplasticity to improve performance through online brain games. The activities in this tool combine different therapeutic exercises and learning and rehabilitation techniques aimed at re-training and improving the skills that each individual needs to train most.

The intervention battery from CogniFit is made up of systematically and strategically organized, multi-discipline tasks. The games and tasks are designed to be used by both professionals and individuals alike, which is why the platform is presented as simple games that can be played on a computer or mobile device. These cognitive stimulation therapy tools are appropriate for the healthy population, people conscious of their brain health, or patients with certain kinds of brain injury or decline in the central nervous system.

All of the cognitive stimulation therapy programs from CogniFit are validated for children, teens, adults, and seniors who want to strengthen their mental ability and compare cognitive level with the rest of the world.

CogniFit offers a series of online cognitive stimulation therapy programs, completely personalized and adapted to each person's cognitive strengths and areas of improvement.

How does the cognitive stimulation therapy from CogniFit work?

The cognitive stimulation therapy tools from CogniFit have been shown to activate and strengthen fundamental cognitive skills with brain plasticity.

By brain training with this leading program in the field of cognitive intervention and rehabilitation, the user is able to stimulate specific neural activation patterns. The repetition of these patterns through clinical tasks and validated games can help improve connectivity in the brain, create new synapses, and myelinate neural circuits able to recover and/or reorganize main cognitive function.

The cognitive stimulation therapy programs from CogniFit were created to stimulate the adaptive potential of the nervous system and to help the brain recover from structural alterations, disorders, or brain damage that affects cognitive function.

It's important to understand that CogniFit's cognitive stimulation therapy isn't about randomly playing games. It's not enough to play games online and hope that it helps improve cognition. A proper cognitive training program requires a therapeutic goal, a theoretical mark, scientific validation, and regulation in the games, like CogniFit. This is the only way that we can be sure that our brain is receiving the cognitive stimulation therapy that it needs.

Our mental ability is related to certain brain activation patterns, and depending on how each of the neurons is connected and activated in the different parts of the brain, our abilities will be more or less efficient.

Is the cognitive stimulation therapy program right for you?

The cognitive stimulation therapy from CogniFit can be used by almost anyone. Everyone can develop cognitive skills in order to optimize and improve function. The cognitive stimulation therapy from CogniFit is designed for the healthy population, as well as people with some kind of brain injury or disorder. No matter your cognitive state, the goal is always to improve a set of cognitive skills.

  • It's not necessary to have a specific problem in order to start training and getting the most out of your cognitive abilities. With the cognitive stimulation therapy from CogniFit, the general population can improve areas of improvement, as the brain's functions and structure and be modified to adapt to its environment. For example, you could try to improve memory in order to reduce forgetfulness or retain information more easily.
  • People with some kind of psychological or neurodevelopment disorder may see lower cognitive scores in some of their skills. Proper cognitive stimulation therapy can help correct or reinforce these skills.
  • People who have suffered any type brain damage were likely people who were used to having certain cognitive functions, and, for some reason (like stroke, TBI, tumor, or neurodegenerative disorder), has seen a decline in their abilities. This can be frustrating for both the patient and his or her family, which is one of the reasons why it is important to recover, strengthen, or maintain cognitive skills. A proper cognitive stimulation therapy can help the patient restore, compensate, or substitute cognitive functions.
  • In the case of neurodegenerative diseases, cognitive stimulation therapy can help slow deterioration and help conserve certain abilities for a longer period of time. In some cases, this can make it possible to improve the quality of life in these patients as the disease continues to develop.
  • With the proper cognitive stimulation therapy, it's possible to increase cognitive reserve, slow cognitive deterioration or cognitive effects in a neurodegenerative process, restore cognitive skills altered by normal aging, re-train damaged abilities after brain damage, etc. All of this is possible because of the brain's ability to modify function and structure. Through cognitive stimulation training, the neighboring areas to damaged parts will assume lost function.

Cognitive stimulation for children

Healthy chldren and teens can boost the cognitive skills they need to study more difficult coursework. CogniFit also has training specifically for children and adults with different types of cognitive disorders:

  • Children with DyslexiaCognitive stimulation therapy for children with dyslexia: Dyslexia is a common learning disorder (it affects an estimated 10% of the population) and affects different cognitive skills used in learning and reading. Training with CogniFit can help improve these altered skills.
  • Children with ADHDCognitive stimulation therapy for children with ADHD: About 3 to 7% of children are estimated to have Attention Deficit Hyperacitve Disorder (ADHD). This learning disorder affects a number of different cognitive skills. Training with CogniFit can help stimulate these cognitive skills in order to reduce the impact of this disorder on daily life.

Cognitive stimulation therapy for adults and seniors

Adults also have the ability to optimize performance both at work, studying, or in their daily lives with cognitive stimulation therapy. Seniors and elderly can maintain or strengthen cognitive function, or help prevent natural cognitive decline due to aging. CogniFit has designed cognitive stimulation therapy programs specific to some disorders, like Multiple Sclerosis, brain injury, chemo brain, insomnia, dyslexia, depression, mild brain damage, dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, and Parkinson's Disease:

  • Adults with cancerCognitive stimulation therapy for chemo brain: Many cancer patients suffer from cognitive affects due to chemotherapy. CogniFit makes it possible to stimulate weakened cognitive skills to reduce impact on daily life.
  • Adults with dyslexiaCognitive stimulation therapy for adults with dyslexia: Dyslexia is a learning disorder that can affect both adults and children. This is why CogniFit has a created a program that is designed to train the cognitive skills altered by this disorder in adults with this disorder.
  • Adults with depressionCognitive stimulation for people with depression: Patients with depression can suffer from neurocognitive alterations caused by the disorder. CogniFit training for people with depression may be a helpful complementary tool to help overcome and reduce the symptoms associated with this problem.
  • Seniors with dementiaCognitive stimulation therapy for dementia: Every year, there are 9.9 million new cases of dementia. This is a term applied to a range of different diseses, each with different problems.

  • Seniors with Parkinson's DiseaseCognitive stimulation for people with Parkinson's DiseaseParkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by tremors, stiffness, and cognitive alterations. The cognitive skills related to this disease can be stimulated with CogniFit to help reduce cognitive decline.

Cognitive stimulation therapy for professinals

Aside from improving cognitive skills, as professionals, we need to apply some type of cognitive stimulation to the people that we work with, whether it be in clinical, educational, or investigative areas.

  • Professional platform for doctors and psychologistsCognitive stimulation therapy platform for doctors and psychologists: Cognitive stimulation therapy can be used in hospitals, medical centers, rehabilitation clinics, psychology clinics, and even at a patient's home. CogniFit has a platform that makes it possible to manage patients, track progress, and easily assign cognitive assessments and cognitive stimulation therapy to patients. This professional tool makes it possible for a doctor or psychologist to send training and assessment to a patient at home, right from their office.
  • Researchers platformCognitive stimulation therapy platform for researchers: We live in a world where science is constantly improving and advancing, and there are more and more scientific studies looking into the computerized cognitive stimulation therapy. This platform offers researchers the ability to assess and train study participants quickly and easily, streamlining the data-gathering process.
  • Schools platformCognitive stimulation therapy platform for schools and educators: Students at school and education centers can see the benefits of brain based learning in their classrooms. With the platform from CogniFit, educators can apply a cognitive stimulation therapy program adapted to each student and track their cognitive progress.

For how long should you practice the cognitive stimulation therapy exercises?

A complete cognitive stimulation therapy sessions usually lasts about 10-15 minutes. CogniFit recommends 3 training sessions a week on nonconsecutive days. CogniFit also offers automatic training reminders which can be adjusted in the user's settings.

During each training session, the user will be presented with two brain stimulation games to activate the brain, and an assessment task to measure improvement and performance.

This cognitive stimulation therapy program form CogniFit was designed to automatically assign the specific games, at the appropriate level, to each user.

What happens when you don't stimulate your cognitive skills?

We can see the importance of strong, well-developed cognitive skills in daily life, as they allow us to be more efficient in day-to-day tasks. When we ask our brains to carry out a certain task related to one or multiple cognitive skills, the connections and neurons related to the skills are trained and strengthened. The repeated stimulation of the neural activation pattern through cognitive stimulation helps improve cognition.

However, if you don't train your cognitive functions, the brain reduces the resources that it sends, meaning that cognitive performance will likely suffer due to lack of appropriate activation. With adequate cognitive stimulation therapy, it's possible to avoid this deterioration.

Differences between cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation

Something that usually causes confusion is the difference between cognitive stimulation and neuropsychological rehabilitation.

Cognitive stimulation could be defined as " the activities aimed at improving general cognitive performance or one of its processes and components, whether it be in healthy subjects or patients with some type of brain injury in the central nervous system" [1].

In other words, cognitive stimulation strengthens cognitive skills with brain games. Neuropsychological rehabilitation, however, is related to recovering lost or altered cognitive skills after damage.

As such, while cognitive stimulation sets out to improve cognitive state, neuropsychological rehabilitation works to re-establish the patient's cognitive function as much as possible, both physically and psychologically.
