Geek Brain: Lumosity

Lumosity LogoBrain health has become increasingly important to me in recent months. I’ve come to realize that I don’t use mine nearly as much as I could. Several months ago I received an invitation to join the beta testing program for a website called Lumosity.

Lumosity provides brain exercising games via Flash and tracks your progress over a 30 day/30 session period. Each session can be completed in about 10 minutes or less. Lumosity clains that “Lumosity is a scientifically designed brain fitness program” and they have an impressive list of advisers from the scientific community.

During beta testing I was able to participate in 28 of the 30 sessions before testing ended. In a short amount of time I improved my scores for each game and moved on to more advanced levels. In addition to improving my scores I also noticed:

Overall, I felt like Lumosity contributed positively to my mental health and I looked forward to each daily session. Lumosity is not free, however, and that’s okay. It’s a good product. Improving your brain health will set you back $9.95 a month or &6.95 a month if you buy a year at a time. Of course you can try before you buy, Lumosity offers a 14 day free trial with no credit card necessary.

If you use Lumosity I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts.
