"BrainRx is a method to train the brain.

Cognitive skills determine the quality and speed of learning, reading, memory, concentration and thinking. Cognitive gaps are very common today and have a huge impact on the younger generation. "The BrainRx brain training method is a solution to these problems. In short, it is a course of one-to-one sessions to develop fundamental cognitive skills.

Who benefits?

"The BrainRx approach has helped more than 100,000 children and adults around the world with academic and daily life problems. We work with each of our students individually, taking into account their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the 7 levels of cognitive skills. The Gibson Test, used by experts around the world, helps us to determine this. It assesses how capable our brains are in each of the 7 key cognitive areas. The test is administered and the results are discussed with licensed BrainRx specialists before you start the programme at the Braingym Centre.

"The Braingym one-to-one programme is suitable for anyone who wants to improve their own or their children's mental performance. People with neurological disorders are no exception. What are the most common problems for which Braingym is contacted?

- Dyslexia and reading disorders
- Difficulties in science
- ADHD and lack of concentration
- Memory problems
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Language development disorders
- Problems after brain injury

What do we train?

Cognitive skills are the areas of the brain responsible for how we think, read, learn, remember or make decisions and focus.
There are 7 key cognitive skills that form the core of our thinking. Only when they work together can they process information efficiently and translate it into a bank of knowledge that we use in our daily lives, at school or in the workplace. When one area is weaker than the other, the overall result inevitably suffers. There is frustration and impatience. In other words, our level of cognitive ability depends on the weakest link. Learn about all 7 areas. 



Concentration is the ability to focus on a task for a certain period of time. Selective attention allows you to concentrate on the task at hand even when you are distracted. Distributed attention allows you to do two or more tasks at the same time.
If the area is weak: lots of unfinished tasks, jumping from one to another, easily distracted, difficult to do several tasks at once, frequent mistakes.

Information processing speed

Information processing speed

Measures how quickly the brain receives and understands incoming information.
If the area is weak: most tasks are harder to understand. Takes longer to complete tasks at school or at work. Usually the last to finish work in a group.

Working memory

Working memory

It is the ability to retain short-term information needed to perform a task.
If the area is weak: instructions often need to be repeated, tasks of two or more steps are difficult to complete, what has just been said is forgotten, it may seem that the person "just doesn't get it".

Long-term memory

Long-term memory

It is the ability to store and reproduce information for later application.
If the area is weak: forgetting names, having difficulty remembering information in tests, forgetting things previously known.

Image processing

Image processing

It is the ability to perceive, analyse and think in images.
If the area is weak: difficulty in understanding concepts that require visualisation, difficulty in reading maps, orientation in the environment.

Processing of auditory material

Processing of auditory material

It is the ability to perceive, analyse and conceptualise what is heard. It is one of the most important skills in learning to read and write.
If the area is weak: it is difficult to learn to read, to spell and write words without mistakes, to comprehend a text that has been read.

Logic and solutions

Logic and solutions

It is the ability to think, prioritise and plan. It is used to find ways to solve a problem. It is needed in the formulation and selection of ideas.
If the area is weak: the question is often asked: "What to do next?" or saying: "I don't understand." Difficult to solve mathematical problems.

How does the brain work?

How do cognitive skills work together in mental tasks? Consider the next task:

Name the capital of Lithuania from end to front.
Sound easy? This task uses all 7 cognitive skills listed below. You will need:
1. Pay attention(attention)
2. 2. Remember the instruction(working memory)
3. Remember the capital of Lithuania(long-term memory)
4. Make a decision on how to solve the problem(logic and solutions)
5. Separate sounds one by one(auditory processing)
6. Remembering and visualising how a word is written(visual information processing)
7. How fast you do these things depends on you(information processing speed).

If any one of these skills is not functioning effectively, the task will be difficult to complete, no matter how many times the task is repeated. For this reason, our goal is to strengthen all of your cognitive skills through a tailored BrainRx programme.

How is BrainRx different from a tutor?

The tutor presents information that the child did not learn in school or that was not presented well.
A tutor is usually the right solution for catching up with classmates who have missed part of their lessons, but this professional
is only effective if the child is able to absorb the information effectively.

"BrainRx is an app designed to develop your ability to assimilate information and solve tasks. If a child has difficulty accepting, processing and applying information or concentrating, repeating information with a tutor is not an effective solution. An attempt should be made to find out why the child did not absorb the information immediately. The problem stems from a lack of cognitive skills that the tutor cannot provide. If the learning process itself is the cause of such difficulties, then the value of the BrainRx programme is infinitely greater in the tutor's case.

The key difference between our training and tutoring services is the longevity of the benefits. "The BrainRx approach teaches a game-based programme. As a result, the child starts to absorb information better at school, and is more willing to solve tasks and do homework. Then he starts to do better. The skills acquired and strengthened during the programme will stay with your child for life. This is particularly important because the ability to take in information, present it, process it and solve tasks or problems is useful not only in school but also in other areas of life.

The effectiveness of the programme has been confirmed by scientific studies.

"The Braingym Centre uses the BrainRx methodology, which has been developed since 1985. Dr. Ken Gibson has devoted his entire career to this programme. Today, more than 100,000 clients of all ages, some of whom are neurologically impaired, have achieved positive results.
"The BrainRx approach is based on Cattell Horn Carroll's theory, which has been hailed as one of the most important research theories in the field of human intelligence.

"The BrainRx app is tested according to the highest standards of scientific methodology (e.g. medical randomised controlled trials). The results were also assessed using the Woodcock-Johnson tests, which compare brain activity before and after the course. Thus, the benefits of the courses are scientifically valid.
