Brain-Training Games Don’t Build Cognition

A review of so-called brain-training games found that rather than strengthening cognition as they claim, they only hone the specific tasks within each game, such as matching colors or strings of letters. What do you think?

“Of course they don’t work on their own. You need to incorporate plenty of online quizzes too.”

“Still, it’s better to be good at matching colors than bad at it.”

“Who are you going to trust: some neuroscientists, or someone with a score of 1700 on Lumosity?”
