“LearningRx programs are based on 35 years of research and input from a team of psychologists, educators, speech and language pathologists, and occupational therapists,” says Tanya Mitchell, Vice President of Research & Development for LearningRx. “With 95,000 students having graduated our brain training programs, we have plenty of data for independent researchers to study our unique cognitive training methodology and results. We not only encourage independent research, but we also actively seek it out. We are eager to share our results, and independent research helps validate our work among the scientific community in an industry that is still relatively young, and therefore under constant scrutiny. It’s part of the reason we created the Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research (www.gibsonresearchinstitute.org).”
