The Truth About Brain Training
We all know that our memories become hazier as we age, and the newest cure is brain training: games and puzzles that are rumored to help keep your brain in tip-top shape – or even improve it. But is... the science behind this newest phenomenon solid? www.degreelibrary.org has created an infographic entitled “The Truth About Brain Training”, explaining the myths and science motivating the brain training movement. Have you heard the adage that we only use 10 percent of our brains? Unfortunately, this is false. Additionally, doing daily puzzles isn’t going to improve your brain or keep it from aging, either. There’s no evidence-based research backing this claim up. Sites like Lumosity.com, brainmetrix.com, and mybraintrainer.com all make the claim that their puzzles help your brain, and try to back it up with scientific research. This research, however, is far from scientific, as these studies are flawed from the beginning. For example, on its website, Lumosity states that “Since 2007, 7 studies have been published on the effects of Lumosity.” The studies have involved Lumosity’s in-house researchers as well as outsiders. Additionally, even studies performed outside of these organizations neglect to show a positive increase in memory or brain function by playing a few minutes of computer games. Feel free to like, share, and comment on this infographic entitled “The Truth About Brain Training” by www.degreelibrary.org.
