Get memory training that works at link above
In marketing the illusion of improvement is just as good as improvement. Unfortunately I believe this is what is happening with the popular brain training games like Lumosity, Fitbrains and Cogmed.
In my opinion but more importantly in the opinions of many scientists when you play these brain training games you may get better at those specific games but you won’t see any lasting memory improvement.
The reason is you are not learning memory techniques. Memory techniques are what truly improves your ability to store data and recall. I’ve done several videos on the Mind Palace. If you couple the Mind Palace techniques with the games then you have something. The Lumosity, Fitbrains and Cogmed games aren’t bad. In fact I believe they are good but they are just half the story.
What would really make these games worthwhile is if you learned memory techniques along with the games. Then the brain training would actually become brain training that makes a difference.
Studies also tell us that exercise is one of the best forms of brain training. Exercise can actually change your brain. I’m not suggesting you cancel your membership to any of these brain training companies. However, I am suggesting that you learn memory techniques such as the Mind Palace if you want to see true memory improvement. If your goal is to actually change your brain then exercise is one of the proven few things that can do that.
Brain training is amazing and worthwhile but you have to do it the right way.
Happy brain training!
