The Brain & Learning

The Brain & Learning

The Brain & Learning was the first brain training centre to open in the Middle East in 2011.


Our founder Pooneh Roney, a former maths teacher, often faced struggling students in her classroom. Curious as to why some individuals excel at certain tasks whilst others fail, she undertook a Masters degree from the Mind, Brain, and Education program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research in neuroplasticity and cognitive psychology led her to understand that it is our cognitive skills that predict academic and career success. Equipped with the knowledge that the brain can build new neural pathways and develop through systematic cognitive training, Ms. Roney introduced the BrainRx brain skills training program to Dubai.

Today, The Brain & Learning remains the most skilled and experienced center to offer brain training. By incorporating the latest neuroscientific research into our programs, we aim to ensure the best outcomes for our clients. We are a dedicated team of certified specialists trained to work with students and adults looking to improve their cognitive skills and maximize their potential. We offer research-based, personalised, and targeted brain training programs that improve academic, career, and everyday performance. Much like physical exercise, our intense mental exercises keep your mind active and sharp. A stronger brain means better attention, learning, remembering, reading, writing, planning, intelligence and confidence.
