A Brain Health Academy Seminar:

1pm - 2pm ET


Register for the Cognitive Training and Dementia class here

There is evidence that cognitive training tools can help older adults who are healthy or have mild cognitive impairment to improve cognitive health and perhaps their everyday functioning. Studies show some forms of cognitive training may help reduce or delay the development of cognitive impairment and dementia.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Participants will be able to list 6 or more modifiable risk factors for dementia 
  • Participants will summarize the types of cognitive training exercises that may help reduce the risk of dementia or improve functioning.   
  • Participants will be able to identify effective interventions and strategies to employ cognitive training with a special focus on adults 45+ 
  • Participants will be able to identify special considerations for high-risk populations.

Dr. Henry Mahncke

Dr. Henry Mahncke is the CEO of Posit Science, which makes BrainHQ. He received his PhD in the lab at UCSF, where lifelong brain plasticity was first discovered. Before Posit Science, Henry worked across biotech, medical devices, and video games as a consultant at McKinsey, and then worked with the British government on science and technology partnerships. Through his work at Posit Science, he has likely been involved in more studies of cognitive training than anyone on the planet.
