Researchers used to believe that cognitive power was fixed after childhood. Over the last few decades, though, scientists have discovered that we can improve our cognitive abilities after childhood. Lumos Labs was founded with one simple goal: to use science to make the world a smarter, brighter, and more confident place.
To facilitate this, we started the Human Cognition Project, a groundbreaking research effort tasked with maximizing human intelligence. Led by the neuroscientists and developers at Lumos Labs, the project aims to leverage Lumosity’s training and assessment technology to improve our understanding of cognitive enhancement and performance.
We’re joined by a Scientific Advisory Board that consists of leading scientists from Stanford, UCSF and other top research institutions. Our Advisory Board does more, though, than just advise the development team at Lumos Labs; they also produce independent research.
Together we’ve discovered that Lumosity training improves intelligence by challenging cognitive faculties using noveland engaging exercises in which the difficulty level constantly adapts to each person’s individual development. When correctly designed, these exercises can produce significant and long-lasting results.
