In Neocogita, we believe that the brain can always be improved, at any age.
We believe in the capacity of human beings to increase their well-being through mind training, i.e. exploiting the aptitude of the brain to adjust to the activities it carries out.
The brain has been proven to be a highly flexible organ that can create new circuits in response to environmental changes and to our thoughts.
We have developed a programme for Brain Wellness® centred on the Mindfulness and Cognitive Training methods to promote mind training built on neuroscientific foundations.
Brain Wellness® sessions improve brain efficiency and make us perform better. By training our memory or stress management, we can modify our brain’s structure and make it more productive in every sphere of our life.
With our team of neuroscientists and psychologists, we have concentrated our research activity on the potential of mind training in corporate settings.
The multidisciplinary team working in Neocogita is made up of neuroscientists, psychologists, I.T. experts, web programmers and graphic designers.
We also have consultants and collaborators with an academic background from major training and research bodies, such as the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) and the University of Trento.
