FAQ’s

What is Neuroeducation?

Neuroeducation is the application of the brain science to education. For example improved brain imaging techniques allow us to see how different activities can promote learning by stimulating the brain to increase connectivity causing it to function more effectively and efficiently.

Is Brain Training new?

Brain Training is as old as the brain itself. What is new is the discovery that the brain can be stimulated to grow and develop at any stage of life. This is called neuroplasticity. The 30-year-old science of neuroplasticity has been harnessed by hundreds of scientists, inventors, therapists and educators who have collectively provided the evidence-based and medically endorsed technologies that Maxi Mind uses to coach its clients to optimum mental performance.

How does Maxi Mind brain training work?

Brain fitness is like physical fitness. You need to exercise the brain to achieve peak performance. Maxi Mind exercisesTM employ a variety of sensory integration and feedback methods to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of information processing throughout the brain. Experienced coaches guide clients through the exercises and support them through the Brain Training process building new neural networks which will be sustained in the long term.

Why not just take up hobbies that exercise the brain like chess or sudoku?

Hobbies like chess or Sudoku are excellent ways to boost logical thinking and problem solving skills. However they don’t remediate wandering attention, nor do they foster calm focused brain functioning outside of the game context. Our activities are designed to not only enhance the brains ability for cognition; it also creates lasting results in the areas of focus, attention, speech, and mood. These skills cannot be achieved without an integrated brain training program.

Can Maxi Mind brain training be used instead of Ritalin, Concerta or Adderall?

Drugs such as methylphenidate (Ritalin), dextroamphetamine, pemoline, atomexatine, and combinations thereof (Adderall) have their advantages but their effects are artificial, short-lived and burdened with unpleasant side effects. Maxi Mind brain exercisesTM, on the other hand, work on a self-healing principle so improvements are lasting and without side effects.

What if we already are using meds?

If you are already using prescription medications like the above, you should not cut them out without medical consultation. You can safely use Maxi Mind brain trainingTM as a complementary treatment. Once you are confident that you are seeing positive and lasting benefits from brain training, you can discuss decreasing or eliminating drug dependence with your doctor, and then act accordingly.

Is Brain Training only for kids?

Brain Training works for all ages. Scientific studies have shown that a brain training course can turn the clock back 10 years on cognitive decline in seniors. Insurance companies promote brain training for drivers because they found that it slashes automobile crash risk in half.
