“Lead­ing Source of Brain Exer­cise Infor­ma­tion Estab­lishes 10 Must-Ask Ques­tions for Con­sumers Choos­ing Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Programs”

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The influx of brain exer­cise pro­grams dur­ing the past six months has lead SharpBrains.com, the nation’s first online brain fit­ness cen­ter and lead­ing provider of men­tal exer­cise infor­ma­tion and pro­grams, to estab­lish a 10-question check­list to help con­sumers choose the best brain fit­ness pro­gram for their needs.”

10 Ques­tions to Choose the

Right Brain Fit­ness Pro­gram for You

 

BASED ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

1. Are there sci­en­tists (ide­ally neu­ropsy­chol­o­gists) and a sci­en­tific advi­sory board behind the program?
2. Are there pub­lished, peer-reviewed sci­en­tific papers writ­ten by those sci­en­tists? How many?
 

MEASURABLE CLAIMS AND BENEFITS

3. What are the spe­cific ben­e­fits claimed for using this program?
4. Does the pro­gram tell me what part of my brain or which cog­ni­tive skill I am exer­cis­ing, and is there an inde­pen­dent assess­ment to mea­sure my progress?
5. Is it a struc­tured pro­gram with guid­ance on how many hours per week and days per week to use it?
 

ENSURES CROSS-TRAINING

6. Do the exer­cises vary and teach me some­thing new?
 

IS IT EXERCISE — OR ENTERTAINMENT

7. Does the pro­gram chal­lenge and moti­vate me, or does it feel like it would become easy once I learned it?
 

GOOD FIT FOR ME

8. Does the pro­gram fit my per­sonal goals?
9. Does the pro­gram fit my lifestyle?
10. Am I ready and will­ing to do the pro­gram, or would it be too stressful?
