Does that www.lumosity.com site really help improve your brain?


I see all these ads for "Lumosity" and how good it supposedly is for you, making your mind sharper and helping you think and learn faster. Has anyone tried it? Does it work? Have any scientific studies been done by unbiased 3rd parties (i.e. not the company that makes Lumosity) on a statistically significant number of people with statistically significant results? Thanks!

    That's what I was wondering: if it help prevent Alzheimers, senility, or even just boredom. As my parents age, that worries me... I'll tell them about it and that there are six games that you don't need to pay for. Thanks, Iburmaster!

    Thanks Dr. Billy Kidd! While going back to college (especially online) won't work for my parents, the supplements are worth trying. Cheers!

    Thanks, duffsmom! That was my impression, too, but I wanted some other inputs before recommending/not recommending it to my aging parents. Cheers!
