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.
For centuries, researchers have created tasks that measure cognitive abilities.
We’ve adapted some of these tasks and made some of our own, creating 40+ fun games.
