Luminosity Review | Does Luminosity Work?

Luminosity Review | Luminosity Brain Training Games
A Luminosity review shows that Luminosity's brain training delivers brain training games that are diverting and fun. Luminosity from Lumos Labs aims to strengthen a host of brain functions with just 15 minutes of training per day. However, independent research of this kind of brain training indicates that while Luminosity's approach to brain training might improve performance on the task being trained, it will not, unlike MindSparke's training, lead to general cognitive gains.

Industry analyst SharpBrains after conducting a Luminosity review as part of its Brain Fitness Market Report found that only 51% of Luminosity customers achieved the results they were looking for.

A popular Luminosity alternative -- MindSparke Brain Fitness Pro -- incorporates progressive working memory training exercises that have been proven by independent research to increase IQ and overall cognitive ability. MindSparke has taken the only brain exercise scientifically proven to produce general cognitive improvement, the dual n back brain training exercise, and incorporated it into Brain Fitness Pro. While Luminosity reviews show that it delivers only task-specific improvement, MindSparke guarantees dramatic cognitive gains with its brain training innovations such as the incorporation of meditation into the brain training process. The chart below compares Luminosity with Brain Fitness Pro.

Brain Training Report – Micha – Session 2

Before MindSparke’s n-back training I twice reached level 12 (6900points) on Lumosity’s Memory Matrix (playing 10 days ); After two sessions with MindSparke’s n-back (level 3 with 65% of accuracy) I reached level 14 (14000 points) — impossible for me before n-back training.

So, this simple test shows that even 2 days with n-back training can give you great results.
