Hands up with you want to speed up your thinking, improve your memory for names and numbers, or increase your alertness and awareness? Okay, there is a new site called Lumosity which is a brain fitness program designed to improve your memory, attention and processing speed. Research proves Lumosity trained people has noticeable improvements on their brain performance. The program is useful, and its games and exercises are fun as well.
Here are some reasons why do we need brain fitness:
The brain needs care just like the body
New research shows that we can improve the health and function of our brains by flexing our mental muscles. Exercising the brain leads to better brain performance today and healthier brains in the long run.
Computer-based brain exercises can improve how well we think
In a recently published study funded by the National Institute of Health, scientists found that memory, attention and mental processing speed can be improved by training the brain. Moreover, they found that the improvements persisted for at least five years after the training.
Scientifically validated brain fitness program
Designed by some of the leading neuroscientists, Lumosity is scientifically demonstrated to exercise and improve:
- Processing speed
- Cognitive control
