TBH Science – Proof Positive

PROOF POSITIVE: BRAIN TRAINING WORKS!

TBH Toolkits are modeled after the training protocols used in the FINGER Study and the ACTIVE Trial which demonstrate that we can train for improved neuroplasticity and lower our chances of serious memory loss.

FINGER (Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability). Participants received a multi-domain intervention consisting of nutritional guidance, exercise, cognitive training and social activity, and management of metabolic and vascular risk factors.

Participants in the treatment group registered significant gains in daily activities that naturally decline with age including:

  • a 83% improvement in executive function
  • a 150% higher score in speed of processing
  • a 40% memory task performance increase

ACTIVE Trial (Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly). Participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 group training trials: Memory, Reasoning, Speed of Processing, and No Contact Control.

Each intervention improved cognitive ability for that which they were trained directly after the intervention period:

  • 87% of the speed of processing group demonstrated improvement
  • 74% of the reasoning group demonstrated improvement
  • 26% of the memory group demonstrated improvement
