In this article, we evaluate the hypothesis that a multimodal cognitive training (MCT) program, theBrighter Minds, can enhance certain inherent traits of a child and thus bring changes in the external behavior. For the study, 186 children (randomized to 93 each in intervention and control group) aged 10-15 years were enrolled from three different locations. Psychometric tests, parental/caregiver interviews and EEG (electroencephalography) tests were conducted before and after the program. Intervention group showed strong statistical significance for improvements in Mini Mental Status Examination (MMSE) (P<0.01) but no significance for Raven’s Standard Progrssive Matrices (SPM) or Susan Harter’s test.

The biopsychosocial (BPS) framework (Grinker RR Sr. 1964, Engel 1981), was the earliest to provide an
integrative, comprehensive model to human development, health, and functioning. It looks at the
interconnection between biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors, to understand how these
influence health, disease and wellness.
