Description

Whether you want to improve your brain health and performance, or just to have a fun and maintain cognitive functions, this app is for you! ‘Brain Trainer: Tune Up Your Left and Right Brain’ is one of the best brain training apps for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch. For all ages, and it is FREE!

Unlike many other brain training apps, this app is founded on solid scientific ground.

Did you know that the brain can be strengthened just like a muscle? Muscles become stronger with use, and using the brain makes it stronger too.

‘Brain Trainer’ is based on famous “Stroop effect” named after J. Ridley Stroop who discovered the strange phenomenon in the 1930s. He found that when the name of a color (e.g., "blue," "green," or "red") is printed in a color not denoted by the name (e.g., the word "red" printed in blue ink instead of red ink), naming the color of the word takes longer and is more prone to errors than when the color of the ink matches the name of the color. The interference between the different information (what the words say and the color of the words) your brain receives causes a problem. That information comes simultaneously from different brain areas / brain hemispheres. It was later found that the task of selecting an appropriate response actively involves anterior cingulate cortex.

The app has lots of mini-games that help stimulate and develop anterior cingulate cortex that is responsible for working memory, error detection, conflict monitoring, motivation, attention, modulation of emotional responses and many other cognitive functions.

Features:
- 12 games
- detailed instructions
- progress report (best / last score)
- performance report (average response time, number of correct/incorrect answers, success rate, medal, etc.)
- sound / music control

Practice daily, try to get higher scores, help your brain to be in good shape!

I use this during cognitive treatment with my nursing home patients. Great for task shifting, attentional control, and mental flexibility. Would pay for this app over and over.

So so

It’s good but it’s way too quick as you’re playing the game
