Dr. Bob Schafer, Ph.D., Head of Research at Lumos Labs, walks us through a brief overview of what brain training is and what the Lumosity training program looks like.
What is brain training? At Lumosity, we think of brain training as guided, targeted practice of games or activities that require specific cognitive abilities: things like memory, attention, speed, flexibility, and problem solving.
Further, all Lumosity activities have two things in common: a basis in research and personalized adaptivity. What does this mean? It means that all our games take inspiration from research in one form or another, and they also all adjust their difficulty based on your performance to keep you challenged.
So, what is Lumosity? Lumosity is an adaptive, research-based brain training program that lets you challenge and practice a broad range of mental abilities.
