We’ve all heard how solving Sudoku is supposed to make you more intelligent. Some of us scoffed at the thought, while others began to play more furiously. Could there really be a scientific basis for this though? Could there be a set of brain exercise that could make your brain functions smarter, brighter and more agile? As it turns out, there is. Enter Lumosity.
Lumosity partnered with Standford University, Harvard University, and Columbia University (among many others) to come up with a set of interactive exercises to enhance memory, attention and even creativity in its users. Since its launch, it has won accolades from some of the best publications in the world like WSJ, MSNBC, USA Today, Time, FastCompany, and Forbes.
Once you sign up, you can personalize your training depending on which mental processes you wish to improve and you can even track your performance over time. A weekly training schedule is made from a selection of over 35 different games which focus on improving a specific brain function. The browser-based games themselves are a lot of fun to play — of course it’s no Need For Speed Carbon but they manage to keep you engaged.
