"I've learned a lot from Lumosity about how my mind works depending on how much sleep I've had, how much exercise I get, and how much my mood affects my mental functions." Judy, Washington
"My maths efficiency has really improved so much since I have been playing every day. I used to think I was awful at maths but it turns out I am not too shabby after all!" Lynette, London
Our scientists had 4,715 participants complete the study. Half trained with Lumosity, while the rest did online crossword puzzles to control for placebo effects.
After 10 weeks, the Lumosity group improved more than the crosswords group on an aggregate assessment of cognition.
These results are promising, but we need to do more research to determine the connection between improved assessment scores and everyday tasks in participants' lives. That's our next focus.
