Smart industry-research collaboration for working memory training

VeryBrain3 inter­est­ing announce­ment yes­ter­day, by Lumos Labs and researchers Susanne Jaeg­gi and Mar­tin Buschkuehl:

The ver­sion of Dual N-Back repli­cates the train­ing pre­vi­ous­ly used in the lab while mak­ing it avail­able online. The pro­gram will be used to facil­i­tate fur­ther research in mem­o­ry and intel­li­gence train­ing, with the Lumos­i­ty Research Plat­form sup­port­ing data col­lec­tion and study admin­is­tra­tion.”

The online avail­abil­i­ty of the dual n-back task is a great step for­ward for our ongo­ing research and we are hap­py hav­ing found Lumos Labs as a com­pe­tent part­ner,” says Dr. Buschkuehl.

Also note that the researchers are now recruit­ing healthy 18–35 year-old vol­un­teers to par­tic­i­pate in an ongo­ing study. (Par­tic­i­pants must be able to trav­el to Ann Arbor, Michi­gan for test­ing). Learn more Here.
