More on BrainWare Safari

BrainWare’s exercises place repetitive demands on deficient functions and present increasing levels of difficulty. Demands are placed in an integrated approach referred to as “cognitive loading” — forcing the brain to automate a function, do it subconsciously when confronted with two simultaneous tasks. This approach drives skills more quickly to an automatic, subconscious level of processing.

The 41 cognitive skills developed by BrainWare Safari are in these broad categories:
