What is Brain Fitness, anyway?

Vijay, one of our read­ers, wrote yes­ter­day a very thought­ful com­ment :

What is brain fit­ness and how it is mea­sured? Is it the same as mind fit­ness which seeks to achieve bal­ance in life?”

I am curi­ous to learn how you would answer that ques­tion. I will add my per­spec­tive over the week­end, since I don’t want to bias your thoughts now.

What is brain fit­ness and how it is mea­sured?

    Vijay: Great ques­tion, as the term fit­ness pre­sumes the log­ics of com­par­i­son and rel­a­tivism. As well, it is a word that car­ries with it the pre­sump­tions of 19th cen­tu­ry Dar­win­ian evo­lu­tion. It might be worth sit­u­at­ing the ques­tion with­in a sys­tems frame­work such that the inquiry is made rel­e­vant to the con­text. Fit­ness in what time and space? For what task? Rel­a­tive to what neur­al func­tions of the brain?

    Neu­ro­sci­en­tists, what say you?

    the gen­er­al state of good, sharp, brain and mind, espe­cial­ly as the result of men­tal and phys­i­cal exer­cise and prop­er nutri­tion.

  3. In our view, “Brain Fit­ness” means the set of brain-based cog­ni­tive and emo­tion­al skills that enable an indi­vid­ual to prop­er­ly func­tion in his or her envi­ron­ment.

    They are mea­sured with neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal assess­ments.
