Teacher Review

Lumosity (Android, iOS) combines proven cognitive science techniques from the Human Cognition Project with a gamified approach to provide users with brain-training mini-games that are fun and effective at exercising your mental muscles. Users create a Lumosity account and then select particular mental faculties they want to exercise. Lumosity then creates customized daily exercise routines with mini-games built around those particular skills. The app tracks your scores, with the difficulty level of games adjusting to your performance, ensuring that you're always challenged. Free users can access a set of daily exercises, while subscribers gain access to a wider variety of exercises and more features.
 
Lumosity prides itself on having manipulated science into the format of fun little games, each one designed to test and improve certain cerebral functions. Currently, over 70 million users across 182 countries are using the app! Lumosity now has over fifty games available that have been created in collaboration with over 100 researches worldwide, and each have been developed side by side with scientists and game designers.
 
Lumosity currently works with qualified independent scientists and researchers from over 40 different universities, in order to further their goal of understanding human cognition. In fact, Lumosity has developed its own Human Cognition Project (HCP), which is its online collaborative research platform. Through the HCP, researchers have access to all tasks and training games, as well as performance data.
 
To start yourself out in Lumosity, their Fit Test will try out your cognitive skills with three games. Once they have your scores and are able to assess your levels, they’ll know what areas need the most work and training, which will enable them to create a tailored brain workout plan. These daily workout games will engage the five main cognitive areas, and as you improve, so will the games adapt to your skill level and get more challenging.
 
As well as this, Lumosity provides the user with insights into how their brain training is going, showing the areas of their strengths and weaknesses. This ongoing analysis of the user will continuously affect and shape their daily workout plan, allowing for responsive training that will target the user’s weaker areas.

THE STORY BEHIND LUMOSITY

We’re a team of scientists and designers exploring new ways to challenge the brain and push cognitive research forward.

Our scientists take common cognitive and neuropsychological tasks, or design entirely new, experimental challenges. Working with experienced designers, they transform these tasks into fun games that challenge core cognitive skills.

We also work with 40+ university researchers worldwide. We give qualified researchers free access to Lumosity training and tools - helping them investigate new areas in cognition.

As we learn more about the possibilities of brain training, we invite you to train with us, and join us in our mission to advance the understanding of human cognition.
