Journal of Neuroimaging Publishes Study on MRIs Showing LearningRx Brain Training Produced Changes in Brain Connectivity
LearningRx Reviews Research using the ThinkRx Brain Training Program for Cognitive Rehabilitation.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 12, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The results of a study published in the Journal of Neuroimaging highlight the benefits of LearningRx’s ThinkRx Personal Brain Training as seen in MRIs that demonstrate changes in brain connectivity.
ThinkRx is an intensive, 60+ hour, one-on-one, clinician-delivered cognitive training program based on the Cattell-Horn-Carroll theory of cognitive abilities, and targets multiple cognitive skills, including attention, working memory, processing speed, logic and reasoning, auditory processing, and visual processing.
The study, which was presented at the 41st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroimaging by Christina Ledbetter, Ph.D., Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and Amy Moore, PhD, Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research, looked at a series of case studies carried out in subjects with varying degrees of traumatic brain injury and cognitive impairment.
“In addition to MR exams, all subjects completed pre/post neuropsychological testing and condition-specific rating scales,” explains Dr. Moore. “Quantitative and qualitative gains across subjects suggest that ThinkRx is a robust cognitive rehabilitative training program. Further, these results support the hypothesis that MRI can be used to visualize default mode network connectivity, even at the single subject level, and to quantify changes in resting-state brain connectivity at both the single subject and group level.”
