Brain+’s vision is to improve your quality of life by helping you train, improve and maintain your brain’s sharpness. To help you on the journey we have developed the Brain+ brain training app which contains a virtual Brain Coach and a number of scientifically designed brain training games that enable you to train critical brain functions such as attention, memory, problem solving, planning, and language.
Improving these brain functions gives you improved performance in areas such as your learning ability, reading speed, creativity, emotional intelligence and stress management.
In the long term, brain training can help you maintain your mental edge throughout life and prevent illnesses such as dementia.
Brain+ games and exercises are developed in collaboration with leading neuroscientists from the University of Copenhagen and is intended for people of all ages.
Below you can read more about the BrainCoach, Captains Challenge, Remember Me and Fresh Frog – techniques and exercises which will all improve your brain in your everyday life.
BrainCoach is a virtual brain trainer teaching easy-to-learn and powerful techniques to get your brain to perform better in everyday life.

Brain training games
In the Captain’s Challenge game, your task is to navigate a ship through a randomized course that automatically adapts difficulty based on your performance. The course will contain several obstacles whose location will be shown to you for a short amount of time before starting the course. In order to complete the course, you will have to remember where the obstacles on the course are. You will then have to navigate through the course without hitting the obstacles and afterwards point out where the obstacles were located.
The exercise focuses on visual short term memory which helps you visualize information and store it in your brain for future recollection. The exercise also tests and trains your ability to pay attention and will provide you with feedback on how well you are performing on these aspects.
Real life applications of Captains Challenge:
- You will be able to process information faster in your working memory while reading, talking and working.
- You will become better at focusing your attention on specific tasks.
- Your spatial navigation will be improved through increased awareness of your surroundings.
In Remember Me, your objective is to remember information about people. During the exercise, a number of people will give you information about themselves. Throughout the game, these same people will return and ask you about the information which they told you earlier. If you cannot remember, you will receive some assistance in triggering your memory. The better you remember, the less assistance you will receive. In addition, you are also faced with the challenge of remembering more information about more and more people.
The exercise is designed to help you improve your long term memory, your working memory and your semantic memory.
Real life applications of Remember Me:
- You will become better, faster and more efficient at coding new information into your brain, i.e. memorizing information.
- You will become better at remembering names and facts about people in your life.
- You will be able to remember information for longer periods of time.
In Fresh Frog your job as the enchanted frog is to plan the most efficient route to the princess to get the kiss you need to break the spell.

The exercise is designed to help you improve your Problem solving skills, your planning skills and your working memory.
Real life applications of Fresh Frog:
