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.
