The brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised.  Just as it is true for children, it is especially true for adults as they age. The Brain Fitness Gym’s Cognitive Fitness Coaches focus on working with you to exercise 14 cognitive functions and skills critical to everyday life. Our coaches are committed to helping you address or hold off age-related functional decline such as dementia.

The 14 cognitive functions and skills our coaches assess and train are:
 
1. Working Memory: A temporary storage place for information that is needed to perform a task.
2. Short Term Memory: A temporary storage place for information before deciding what to store in the long term memory.
3. Shifting: Flexibility; the ability to change the course of one’s actions.
4. Time Estimation: The ability to accurately determine time passage.
5. Response Time: How long it takes to detect, analyze and respond to a stimulus.
6. Naming: The retrieval of words (names, nouns, and verbs).
7. Divided Attention: The ability to concentrate simultaneously on two or more channels of stimulation.
8. Inhibition: The ability to suppress irrelevant reactions.
9. Awareness: The ability to evaluate one’s own cognitive functioning.
10. Spatial Perception: The ability to evaluate how things are arranged in space.
11. Eye Hand Coordination: The ability to manage accurately hand movements in response to visual stimulus.
12. Planning: The ability to think ahead step-by-step before the actual execution of a task.
