Atlanta Neuroscientist Credits LearningRx with Changing Her Son’s Life

in Latest LearningRx Review

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – While millions of people make New Year’s resolutions to get their body in shape, personal brain training company LearningRx ( is reminding people that getting your brain in shape is just as important. As one Atlanta neuroscientist found out first hand, neuroplasticity allows the brain to change and improve at any age—if you know how to target your cognitive skills.

“One-on-one brain training incorporates immediate feedback, intensity and loading, among other features, to work on brain skills,” explains LearningRx Vice President of Research & Development Tanya Mitchell. “Effective brain training targets attention, auditory processing, and memory, along with visual processing, logic and reasoning and/or processing speed to make thinking, learning, reading and remembering easier and faster. Because programs are customized, personal brain training works for all ages—children, teens, adults and seniors.”

Dr. Anne Murphy, Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University says that although she understood the science behind various ‘rewiring’ programs, she was still skeptical of personal brain training at first. But after doing a lot of research, she enrolled her son, a high school freshman, in nine months of brain training at LearningRx. “He was struggling academically due to an expressive language disorder, and I was seriously worried he would be asked to leave the high school he loved. We had numerous tutors, but it was clear that he needed more. Things were not ‘sticking.’ I was pretty frantic and spent a lot of time researching various programs, then decided to try LearningRx. At the end of his training, my son’s cognitive skills improved dramatically. One of the best things was that his school performance progressively and consistently improved, and along with it, my son’s confidence level. We went from a solid lower C student to an A/B student. One of my primary areas of research is neuroplasticity, so I really should not have been surprised.”
