Scibrain program to improve brain health and brain fitness while helping to reduce Alzheimer's Disease Risk using a novel scientific approach.Sci-Brain is a new approach to improving brain fitness supporting the strong relationships between physical and brain health.
Our focus is building brain reserve to optimize mental performance and protect the brain from the clinical manifestations of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias for people of all ages. The programs unique Brain Reserve Index™ actually qualifies the various factors that influence brain reserve allowing you to track your improvement.
Led by the internationally recognized Roskamp Institute, Sci-Brain also applies the latest knowledge of leading worldwide research centers on Alzheimer’s disease as we continually update the brain health program with new information.
The Sci-Brain screening tools derive from state-of-the-art research which identifies specific risk factors for low brain reserve. Sci-Brain develops a personalized brain health plan designed to address those specific risk factors that apply most to each individual. Your personalized Brain Reserve Index™ will allow you to monitor your progress as you build brain reserve. Building brain reserve optimizes memory and other mental performance and protects the brain from the clinical manifestations of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Brain reserve reflects the number of connections between neurons, those cells in the brain responsible for memory, learning, and mental abilities. We know from the vast scientific literature on the subject that increasing brain reserve is associated with resistance to disorders like Alzheimer’s, stroke, and traumatic brain injury.
Under the direction of our Cognitive Neurologist, the Sci-Brain team of specialists work together to find and design solutions that will best help each individual resist decline enhance performance and build brain reserve.
The program begins with a proprietary Sci-Brain assessment that includes a comprehensive health history and physical review screenings specifically focused on current and potential risk factors that can interfere with building brain reserve. Physical, emotional, psychological, sleep and other factors are all carefully assessed and quantified.
Each individual receives a customized Sci-Brain Health Plan that identifies activity in the specific areas where the most improvement to brain reserve can be made.
The Science Behind Brain Reserve
Researchers used to believe that our brains were hardwired from birth. They now know the brain is plastic. The brain has the ability to grow new pathways under the right stimulations and environment in order to better cope with insults to the brain.
Once scientists realized the adult brain's enormous capacity for plasticity, they could study the effects of aging and Alzheimer's disease on that capability and explore ways to maintain healthy brain function.
