Cognition is in its essence your ability to think..
Why should I try Lumosity?
Imagine.. if we can improve our thinking we can also improve how we relate to other areas of life and find new and better solutions.
My lab is interested in pursuing how we can enhance cognition to improve quality of life.”

How does it work?
I really like that They have divided the brain or our cognitive abilitites in 5 areas:

NeuroCognitive Performance Test – you can take neuropsychological assessments designed by neuroscientists to digg even deeper.
Some games provides rewards, like this one, demonstrating “Jastrow Illusion”, where all the acs are the same shape and size.
