SCIENCE BEHIND LUMOSITY
Lumosity is designed by neuroscientists to train memory, attention, and more. With foundations in the study of neuroplasticity, Lumosity games have improved working core cognitive abilities in several research studies.
IN THE NEWS
Harvard Business Review
"Designed by neuroscientists, a brain training approach such as Lumosity builds on breakthrough concepts such as neuroplasticity and fluid intelligence."
"The mini-games are fun rather than dry, making it a daily habit that never feels like a chore."
"Your body isn’t the only thing that needs a workout – your brain needs stimulation to stay in peak shape. This Oz-approved game works to improve your memory."
"The app itself is very clean, and performance is excellent."
Wall Street Journal
"The games offer a scorecard of your performance and let you follow changes in performance over time, so you can see if you're getting better or backsliding. You can also choose what skills you want to improve."
"I’ve found the Lumosity training fun, challenging, and—as it only takes 15 or 20 minutes a day—brief enough that it doesn’t become a time-sink."
"This site offers a wide variety of games designed by neuroscientists to help keep your brain agile and to improve cognitive function."

What's New in Version 2.92
In the relentless pursuit of perfection... more minor fixes.
I just did my first day and that was so creative and interesting it really captured my attention and allowed me to have a positive brain training moment. We work out to train our bodies, but sometimes in a mundane day you need something imaginative yet productive to tingle your intellectual side. I really enjoyed the first session and I am looking forward to what tomorrow's experience will hold with this new app.
An Interested Customer
I subject my body to five physical workouts a week, so it makes sense to exercise the gray matter regularly, too. I find that the web-based games sometimes assume keyboard skills or attributes (e.g. numeric keypad) that I don't have, but this iOS app gets around that issue.
Whether these games actually improve your cognitive abilities is open to debate, but clearly they are better than drooling in front of a TV set.
I'm very glad I downloaded this app. I've played some of the games previously and decided to re-download it on my iPad. If you find yourself forgetting simple things in your life or lacking concentration on day to day activities I would recommend downloading Lumosity. Exercising your brain is just as important as exercising your muscles.
