You've probably already heard about Lumosity, the controversial brain training app that promises to improve your memory and cognitive skills through a customized workout plan. Many people don't trust its alleged benefits, but you can now try it out for yourself on your iPhone or iPad.
Brain training based on innovating concepts such as neuroplasticity or fluid intelligence.
Lumosity intends to enhance our memory, attention and concentration by means of more than 50 cognitive games designed jointly by neuroscientists and video game developers.
How does Lumosity work?
To start off you'll play 3 games with which the application will determine your brain level compared to other users of your same age and check out which aspects you should improve. It will then offer you a customized workout to be carried out daily in order to improve up to 5 core areas of our brain.
Furthermore, we can also monitor our progress to see how our training is improving our intellectual capacity.
