Cognitive Training | The Science

Neurogenesis, Or How The Brain Changes

In 1998 Dr. Fred Gage and his colleagues demonstrated that the human brain generates new neurons thoughout life. As reported in Nature these findings overturned decades of scientific dogma that the adult brain was fixed and unchanging (except for the gradual and inevitable demise of neurons as we aged). Gage's work has become the cornerstone of a new field of science that is exploring the most effective cognitive training for promoting the growth of new brain cells.
cognitive training for adult neurogenesis

[New neurons] are generated from dividing progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus of adult humans. Our results further indicate that the human hippocampus retains its ability to generate neurons throughout life.
Nature Medicine 4, 1313 - 1317 (1998) doi:10.1038/3305



Advances in cognitive training have shown that intensive working memory training promotes neurogenesis and leads to increased brain power. Brain Fitness Pro stimulates new brain cell growth to increase focus, memory, and intelligence

OK, Brain Training, And What Else?

One of the questions I get asked most often by MindSparke trainees is what else they can or should be doing to maximize their brain power.  Research shows that regular exercise is not only good for the body but good for the brain as well. This Time magazine piece summarizes evidence from several studies demonstrating [...]

Stage: 3 Session: 28 Average N: 5.3 I think I tied my highest average. Felt relatively sharp. I seriously need to do this on a daily basis.
