Brain training games seem to have little effect

Posted on Thursday, April 22 2010 @ 02:31:45 CEST by


A large-scale study launched by the BBC suggests games like Nintendo's Brain Training do not improve overall brain power. During the six week test period players got progressively better at the games, but they gained nothing in terms of general reasoning, memory, planning or visuospatial abilities.
The largest ever investigation followed 11,430 people over six weeks to see what effect, if any, playing brain training computer games would have.

While players got progressively better at the games, the gains were not transferable, Nature journal reports.

Players gained nothing in terms of general reasoning, memory, planning or visuospatial abilities, experts found.

But they say more work is needed to see if workouts for the mind can help keep the brain "fit" as it ages.
