Drawing from our extensive research experience in cognitive skills enhancement, we developed the Neuro-Ludus brain training game by applying important discoveries in neuroplasticity to gaming and mobile technology. Neuro-Ludus is our latest flagship project which is designed to enable youth and adults to enhance their analytical/information processing skills and learn more effectively. The research and development of Neuro-Ludus were funded by the Government of Canada, Office of Literacy and Essential Skills.
An animated video demonstration of Neuro-Ludus is accessible from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAYN0xTfihM

Education and Training for economic development
We embraced a definition of sustainable development as “meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”
We know from experience that to merely have the opportunity to be in the presence of an educational or training environment does not necessarily lead to successful learning. To prevent youth and adult learners from being left behind due to cognitive skill gaps, education must not only be physically accessible to all, but must also be cognitively or intellectually within the reach of all.
Education and training for poverty alleviation, social adhesion and social cohesion
The principle of sustainable development calls for an integrated approach to recognizing the interdependence and interconnectedness between environmental, social, economic and global considerations.
We believe that significant improvement in human performance can be achieved by focussing on conditions of learning that are internal to the learners rather than the external conditions
Education and training for decent work
Workers will require new ways of thinking, new attitudes and skills to be able to contribute to the achievement of the goals of sustainable development.
Recent brain research focused on neuroplasticity has demonstrated that the brain is “soft-wired” and can be modified with proper training and experience. This very important discovery has paved the way for innovative approaches to develop and enhance human cognitive skills
