Big Salute to the great work of these Cognitive game makers.

     

 

COGNITO

 

If the other brain training apps on this list aren’t game-like enough for you, try out Cognito. There are stories to follow — like secret agents and global spy missions — with powerful brain training tests built in. It has all of the features you’ll find in other apps, focusing on memory, logic, word mini-games, and stats to track your skill progression. It is only available on iOS, but if you use Apple’s Health app you can pull in data like steps and sleep to see how these other elements are affecting your brain health. 

 


LUMINOSITY

This is one of the most popular brain training apps and it’s created with both scientists and game designers. The researchers take tasks that have been used for decades to measure cognitive ability and the designers create engaging, exciting games to fit our contemporary tastes. The games are also great for people of all ages, so you can get you kids involved or, if you’re a teacher, your students! There are more than sixty games in three categories: cognition, math, and language. You take a baseline test, perform brain training workouts, and then track your scores to give you insight on your improvement over time.
