Brain Games & Exercise
Mind Sparke Brain Fitness Pro provides unbeatable brain games and brain exercise for visual and aural short term memory. The training is also perfect for improving mental focus, and multi-tasking ability. Less than 30 minutes of daily memory training increases short term memory, attention, and fluid intelligence by more than 40% in fewer than thirty days. Unlike many other brain grames and brain exercises, MindSparke is designed to improve your real world, day-to-day cognitive abilities, not just your scores on the brain games themselves.
Personalized Memory Training Profile
The MindSparke memory training system guides you through a set of training exercises, adjusting automatically as you progress. At each stage of training you will be challenged and inspired to progress with novel new working memory tasks.
At MindSparke you will see and feel your progress, gaining insight into the memory training benefits with a series of informative progress charts. You will always know how you're doing and what level of difficulty will be coming next.
Cost-Effective, Online Access
MindSparke's philosophy of afforable online memory training exercises coupled with its traditional brain training download and brain training for PC or Mac frees you from high fees and restricted use (brain training for PC or Mac comes with the SE online training subscription). You can exercise your memory as often as you want from wherever you want.
Brain Fitness Pro SE includes complimentary access to MindSparke's memory training download (brain training for PC and Mac). You can use this locally-installed memory training software to continue with your brain exercise even when you don't have an Internet connection.
Supplemental Meditation & Brain Entrainment
Brief periods of meditation can dramatically enhance the benefits of memory exercise. We highly recommend ten minutes of meditation before and after memory training. Your Brain Fitness Pro SE subscription includes access to MindSparke's own guided meditation recordings designed to increase the impact of the training.
Brain entrainment audio recordings can further sharpen your mind and increase your focus. Brain Fitness Pro SE has a library of brain entrainment audio files for your unlimited use.
Dual N Back and Beyond
Each of Mind Sparke's brain training exercises incorporate both visual and aural memory stimuli to produce intensive memory exercise for focus and working memory. Starting out with straightforward training tasks, visual and aural sequences that you must remember and repeat, the online brain training system works up to more complicated exercises. Stage 3 incorporates the renowned "Dual N Back" memory training exercise (described below). And Stage 4 of the training guides you through a varied set of proprietary training exercises, evolutions of the dual nback exercise, to further strengthen your executive control of working memory.
During the "dual n-back" brain training exercise (Stage 3) the program presents a series of white squares on a black background, three seconds apart. At the same time it produces a series of spoken letters. You must try to identify matches in both sequences.
At the first level of difficulty, the matches occur two positions apart. In this example (left) of a visual sequence the blocks in the first and third positions match.
The diagram to the right depicts an aural sequence; the third and fifth (F) sounds match. The program presents the visual and aural memory training sequences at the same time, as shown below.
As you begin to master the dual N back exercise, the program automatically adjusts the level of difficulty by increasing the distance between matches to three places and beyond. (Some customers have achieved a working memory capacity of about 14 items - average untrained capacity is 5 or 6 items.)
Mind Sparke's proprietary software programs take memory training to the next level. By challenging your brain with an evolving sequence of new stimuli you will achieve new heights of brain power and intellectual capacity.
