What are Brain Training Games?

The most effective way to train your brain is using brain training games (also known as brain memory games and brain exercise games) that have been scientifically designed to exercise and stimulate specific functions and parts of your brain for:

  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Learning

Brain game training is user friendly, an assessment is initially done to see how you perform then base the training on those results to give you personalized training and the fastest improvement. The training seems like simple games, which makes them engaging and fun but is deceptive, as they are designed to increase in difficulty as you get faster and smarter.

How are brain games different to normal daily mental activity?

There is a big difference…just like the difference between daily physical activity and fitness training. Each day you move your body walking, lifting, bending etc but this is not the same as going to the gym and doing specific exercises to tone and stretch specific muscle groups to heal an injury, lose weight or just become fit and toned.

Brain training games are exactly the same. Even though in daily life you are using your brain for everything you do, it is not the same as specific targeted exercises that focus on specific brain structures and cognitive functions like attention, memory and comprehension. As with physical fitness the work you do in the gym affects everything else you do in life, as you are stronger, fitter and more flexible. Brain exercises do the same in that they improve your functioning and abilities in everything you do using your brain.
