"The brain training program which is making the biggest difference in my 60 year old noggin is Mind Sparke by Martin Walker... This one is a gem."
Mike Logan, Ask Mike The Counselor
"I have been using Brain Builder 3.0, the Posit Science Brain Fitness Program, Martin Walker's Mind Sparke program, and the Lumosity online subscription program for brain fitness.
"... the program which is making the biggest difference in my 60 year old noggin is Mind Sparke by Martin Walker.
"I have done a teleseminar with Martin, and I am very impressed with his adaptation of the dual n-back task. I know that Mind Sparke has made a huge difference in my ability to schedule my time, and I have been the victim of an ADD brain attentional style my entire life, lots of projects started, few finished.
"I swear by this one, and you buy it online, it is right there on your computer, the research underlying the program is impeccable, and the researchers are not hawking the product, they are still in academia, and there are unlimited repetitions of the training available. Lots of indications of integrity. And my personal testamonial. It works.
"[Mind Sparke is] a wonderful program with no upper limit (do the first 19 days as regularly as you can, then practice every 2nd or 3rd day) to your growth. Martin is saying that use of this program increases IQ. I know it makes me more effective and productive because I am staying on schedule. Fluid intelligence which is what Mind Sparke trains, is the ability to sort through competing noises, and still stay on task. (Remember, crystallized intelligence is the stuff we know we know, and use at work, for example, over and over)."

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 [...]
