Mind games that can sharpen the brain (Miami Herald):
“A great resource for finding “mind games,” or what’s popularly know as “brain training,” is the website of SharpBrains, a company that tracks health and wellness applications of brain science. Its founder and CEO, Alvaro Fernandez, writes in his blog that, “Anything we do involving novelty, variety and challenge stimulates the brain and can contribute to building capacity and brain reserve.”
Fernandez advises choosing a game “that exercises a core brain-based capacity … that is relevant to real-life outcomes.” For example, in his list of the “ Top 50 Brain Teasers and Games” that his readers have enjoyed the most is a set of five exercises that are intended to improve one’s ability to keep information current for a short period while using the information.”
