Does brain training work = Does it improve cognitive performance in a sustained manner?

BrainFitnessTrajectoryBrain Train­ing – Can We Real­ly Enhance Our Cog­ni­tive Skills? (Brain­Blog­ger):

Under what con­di­tions does brain train­ing work?” was the ques­tion posed at one of the ses­sions of the Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit, Mon­i­tor­ing and Enhanc­ing Brain Health in the Per­va­sive Neu­rotech­nol­o­gy, an event that brought togeth­er over 30 of the world’s top experts on brain health enhance­ment through emerg­ing neu­rotech­no­log­i­cal interventions…

As Alvaro Fer­nan­dez, CEO and Co-Founder of Sharp­Brains, high­light­ed, one thing needs to be cleared before enter­ing this dis­cus­sion: how do we define that a brain train­ing inter­ven­tion is “work­ing”? As Alvaro Fer­nan­dez stat­ed, what con­sumers of brain train­ing inter­ven­tions are main­ly look­ing for is to improve per­for­mance, not treat dis­eases. By liv­ing longer, we are faced with the need to delay cog­ni­tive decline as much as pos­si­ble. And, in fact, from a health­care per­spec­tive, the best way to pre­vent symp­toms of aging, cog­ni­tive decline, neu­rode­gen­er­a­tion, or even depres­sion is to improve per­for­mance in a sus­tained man­ner. Bet­ter per­for­mance will delay decline, and con­se­quent­ly, will delay the onset of symp­toms. So, we can say that a brain train­ing inter­ven­tion works when it improves cog­ni­tive per­for­mance in a sus­tained man­ner…Keep read­ing arti­cle over at Brain­Blog­ger.
