The billion-dollar brain training industry would have you believe that playing brain games on your computer or mobile device will help boost your mental functioning, but the scientific research on the matter tells a different story. Today I will share with you my story as a young graduate student trying to unlock the power of brain games and the science that demonstrates the limitations of brain games. The truth is that brain games help you get better at the game, but they do not help you to improve mental functioning overall. Brain games can be played for fun, but there is little evidence to suggest that they will boost your brain capacity. Not to worry, researchers have been hard at work trying to figure out what actions you can take that will help you boost your mental functions – you just won’t find them in the app store. The evidence suggests that we step away from training discrete cognitive abilities using computerized programs and apps and engage in the complexity that exists in our everyday worlds – learning new things and challenging our minds.
