As promised, although a bit late, here is my follow up blog on cool ways to stimulate brain growth. A week ago I shared information about lumosity.com . This week’s blog offers a similar site to explore with a free demo.
The site is www.soakyourhead.com and the game to try out is called Dual n-Back. Here is what one graduate student from the University of Michigan’s Psychology Department had to say related to the game.
“ It involves keeping track of auditorally presented letters and spatial locations simultaneously, and has been shown to increase fluid intelligence.”
The game is designed to help improve working memory and attention while decreasing impulsive behavior.
It is a very challenging game at first, but according to researchers who evaluated it, most people improve over time. Try it out and write back with a comment about the game.
