Attention Activity Directors and Wellness Leaders
You're busy, so here's a turn-key program just for you. Super Noggin gives you training and program materials to offer a comprehensive brain fitness to your community.

Super Noggin is unique.  Many cognitive enhancement programs offer memory training and brain teasers. But leading researchers and organizations like the Alzheimer's Association agree: People need to do more than just play brain games.

A combination of lifestyle factors contributes to brain health.

Super Noggin
  • educates about the lifestyle behaviors that contribute to
       brain health
  • builds in lots of social interaction and mentally
       stimulating activities
  • adds a personal tracking system
  • creates an environment where science meets fun
  • With a foundation of evidence-based components, Super Noggin can play a key role in comprehensive wellness plans and activity programs at community centers, corporations, YMCAs, retirement communities, JCCs, hospitals, fitness facilities, and lifelong learning centers.

    Super Noggin was created in 2009 by LEAF Ltd., a private foundation and 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting cognitive wellness. When the founder retired in 2016, the foundation closed and the Vice President for Research, the creator of the Super Noggin program, took it over as an LLC.
