Cognitive Enhancement & Lifelong Learning

Developing confident lifelong learners is a collective goal to which we aspire. Then, an education succeeds to the extent that teachers graduate themselves out of a learner’s life to allow the student to never graduate from the act of learning. Learning is a cognitive process, and life-long learning requires that students understand how they learn and master the process. Successful learning follows a set of scientific principles, which research shows isn’t innate or taught explicitly in schools. The goal of lifelong learning presumes the interdependent cognitive skills upon which we rely on for learning are working optimally. This is often not the case. Our collective aspiration for developing confident lifelong learners cannot passively coexist with the cognitive diversity inherent to every classroom. COGx aims to equip schools, learning centers and specialists to fill this gap by offering a variety of services developed through interpreting and applying the latest research. To compete in a globalized and highly specialized world, we must all become lifelong learners. To enjoy the years of life modern medicine has afforded our bodies, we must preserve our minds. Cognitive enhancement is the path that enables lifelong learning to occur.

Our 2016 publication for educators is made available exclusive to partners and the markets they serve. The publication contains approximately 60 pages of insights distilling over 100 scientific journals. The publication’s focus is on how to develop better learners through improvements in emotion, cognition and behavior.

The impact of learning disabilities, concussions, brain injuries, trauma, and illnesses have on our cognitive skills is astonishing. Clinicians mostly do their best to remediate cognition with indirect approaches. This publication identifies the gap and provides ideas on how more targeted, science-based approaches can be applied to remediate cognition.

Our 2015 publication surveys the research available to enhance and/or remediate cognitive skills, including a section on the state of the industry. The publication offers a clear distinction between standardized and customized programs. It explains how to audit programs and highlights the limitations of programs delivered by franchisors and/or online.
