Neuroplasticity: the discovery that made brain training possible

Research has found that certain types of activities may impact the brain more than others 1. It’s believed that as an activity is repeated, the brain tends to fall back on the same set of existing neural pathways. To continue changing, the brain must be exposed to novel, adaptive experiences that challenge it to work in new ways.

Drawing on this idea, Lumosity is designed to give each person a set of exercises that challenge their cognitive abilities.

Mike Scanlon, Co-founder

10 years ago, Mike was just a neuroscience student with an idea: what if he could get brain research out of the lab? That idea became Lumosity.


Joe Hardy, PhD, VP of Research

With his background in research and development, Joe joined in 2009 to enrich Lumosity’s research and help create the Human Cognition Project.
