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?
