Under what conditions does brain training work?

Despite ongo­ing con­tro­ver­sies, the evi­dence is clear: Some brain train­ing inter­ven­tions (in a broad def­i­n­i­tion, includ­ing cog­ni­tive train­ing, vir­tual real­ity and brain stim­u­la­tion) work, and some don’t. What explains the dif­fer­ence? What con­di­tions max­i­mize the prob­a­bil­ity of trans­fer into real-life ben­e­fits? Under­stand­ing these con­di­tions, as out­lined in The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness, is cru­cial to sep­a­rate wheat from chaff.
