In psychology, fluid and crystallized intelligence (abbreviated Gf and Gc, respectively) are factors of general intelligence originally identified by Raymond Cattell.
Fluid intelligence is the ability to find meaning in confusion and solve new problems. It is the ability to draw inferences and understand the relationships of various concepts, independent of acquired knowledge.
Crystallized intelligence is the ability to use skills, knowledge, and experience. It should not be equated with memory or knowledge, but it does rely on accessing information from long-term memory.
The dual n-back task was proposed by Susanne Jaeggi et al. in 2003. In this variation, two independent sequences are presented simultaneously, typically using different types of stimuli, such as one auditory and one visual.
In a 2008 research paper Jaeggi et al. claim that practicing a dual n-back task can increase fluid intelligence, as measured in several different standard tests. This resulted in some attention from popular media, including an article in Wired.
In 2009, it was reported in Science that '14 hours of training over 5 weeks' led to measurable density changes for cortical dopamine neuroreceptors.

Great app! ...with Suggestions
Very good, clean and straightforward implementation... with lots of user controllable options. Definitely recommended.
My only suggestion is that to me the woman's voice sounds nearly the same on "s" and "f". Can you just delete one of them on the next update? Also, I would like if the audio/video buttons had a setting to reverse their position (to make this app consistent with other trainers I use to avoid boredom)
Overall - outstanding! Thanks.
This is the best dual n back on the iPhone! I've tried them all. This one has reaction times and also a picture version comined with sounds in addition to the jaeggi task.
Very good stats with reaction times for each modality.
Improvements would be to 1) eliminate the annoying intro sound (only played at startup),2) allow more phonemes, and 3) allow customization of block length, and 4) show more stats like "false positives" and "false negatives".
Highly recommended though, well worth the money and definitely the best available!!
What a great app for training your brain. It's straight forward. If only you would update the graphics. Lol. But the core of the game needs no change. It does what it's supposed to do. It's challenging alright but very rewarding. Thank you for this.
