Enjoy brain training created by scientists and game designers

Start your training with 50+ cognitive games today.

How you'll train

We’re exploring new ways to understand human cognition


New methods

With experimental tools and data that include 3 billion game plays, we're promoting innovation in cognitive research.


Ongoing studies

Our in-house research explores many topics, from brain training to how sleep and mood interact with our training program.


90+ university collaborators

We believe in driving research forward. That’s why we offer qualified independent researchers free access to our games and tools.

We transform science into delightful games

For decades, researchers have created tasks that measure cognitive abilities. We’ve adapted some of these tasks and made some of our own, creating 50+ cognitive games.

Scientists delve into research

Our scientists work side-by-side with our designers. They make sure each game maintains the core mechanics of the original task designed to challenge a specific cognitive skill.

Game Designers bring to life

Our designers and developers add exciting game features and themes while making sure each game is accessible, engaging, and challenging to people of all ages.

Our scientists research the efficacy of Lumosity

We conducted a randomized study on Lumosity, using crossword puzzles as an active control.

What we did

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.

What we found

After 10 weeks, the Lumosity group improved more than the crosswords group on an aggregate assessment of cognition.

Next questions

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.

We collaborate with the scientific community

We work with 100+ researchers worldwide, many of whom we give free access to our brain training tools — helping them research new areas in human cognition.
