3 fun brain teasers for adults to challenge your cognitive skills

Brain_cognitiveskillsFirst of all, what is cog­ni­tion? Cog­ni­tion has to do with how we under­stand the world and act in it. Cog­ni­tive skills are the brain-based func­tions that we need to car­ry out any task from the sim­plest to the most com­plex. For exam­ple, answer­ing the tele­phone involves per­cep­tion (hear­ing the ring tone), deci­sion tak­ing (answer­ing or not), motor skill (lift­ing the receiv­er), lan­guage skills (talk­ing and under­stand­ing lan­guage), social skills (inter­pret­ing tone of voice and inter­act­ing prop­er­ly with anoth­er human being).

Here are three fun brain teasers to help you chal­lenge your cog­ni­tive skills over the week­end, com­ing from our col­lec­tion of brain teasers & games for adults of all ages. Enjoy!
