Two Important Studies Indicate Brain Exercises Improve Function

Press release from: LearningRx

/ PR Agency: none
Colorado Springs, Colorado – Colorado Springs-based LearningRx confirms today that its findings are consistent with those released in a report by the American Medical Association last week.

"The results reported in our independent statistical analyses are supported by those published in the Journal of the American Medical Association," explains LearningRx President and Founder, Dr. Ken Gibson. "Mental exercise improves the brain the way physical exercise improves the body."

The subjects of the AMA study were American senior citizens undergoing cognitive skills therapy, but Dr. Gibson asserts that analyses performed on children seeking the same type of therapy at LearningRx brain training centers indicate the same results; brain function can improve with appropriate brain training.

"Our brain training, like the training in the AMA study, focuses on cognitive skills," says Dr. Gibson. "Weak cognitive skills are the cause of 80% of learning problems. They include the skills we all need to read and learn---working and long-term memory, auditory and visual processing and attention skills, among others."

According to the results of the LearningRx statistical analyses and the AMA study, the good news is that cognitive skills can be improved through intense one-on-one training that trains subjects how to learn. The results of cognitive skills training are dramatic and long-lasting. Among students participating in a 24-week LearningRx reading program, the average improvement is 4 grade levels.

The LearningRx analyses was conducted in June 2006 by Educational Statistics Consulting and is available by contacting LearningRx corporate offices at www.learningrx.com. The AMA study was published last week in The Journal of the American Medical Association and is available online at
