The Lumos­i­ty Brain Fit­ness Pro­gram offers nine online, engag­ing and chal­leng­ing brain exer­cis­es done on a com­put­er with Inter­net con­nec­tion.

Giv­en that all the oth­er pro­grams in our Shop require a soft­ware instal­la­tion in a Win­dows com­put­er, we par­tic­u­lar­ly rec­om­mend this option for the many Mac users who have con­tact­ed us.

  • mem­o­ry: Mem­o­ry exer­cis­es tar­get the types of mem­o­ry that are impor­tant in every­day life such as work­ing mem­o­ry, spa­tial mem­o­ry, and remem­ber­ing names and faces.
  • atten­tion: Con­cen­trat­ing on rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion while ignor­ing irrel­e­vant infor­ma­tion is improved by games that exer­cise visu­al atten­tion, selec­tive atten­tion, and shift­ing focus.
  • pro­cess­ing speed: Quick­ly per­ceiv­ing, inter­pret­ing, and respond­ing to new infor­ma­tion under­lies pro­fi­cien­cy in many areas.
  • cog­ni­tive con­trol: Con­trol of oth­er cog­ni­tive process­es is nec­es­sary for think­ing and act­ing accord­ing to inter­nal goals.
