Benefits of Lumosity
Based on the concept of neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to learn and physically adapt given appropriate stimuli - the games and exercises train and improve four basic cognitive abilities:
• memory
• attention
• processing speed
• cognitive control

In randomized, controlled trials, Lumosity has been shown to significantly improve working memory, visual attention and executive processing.
 

History
Lumosity is developed by neuroscience company Lumos Labs, a pioneer in the cognitive training space. The company works in collaboration with its advisory board, consisting of leading scientists in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and bioinformatics from Stanford, UCSF, and other leading
research institutions.

About the games

Word Bubbles - Language and Flexibility
Word Bubbles is designed to train and improve your processing speed. It targets verbal fluency by training you to think flexibly and creatively come up with words.

Lost in Migration - Attention and Response Inhibition
Lost in Migration is designed to train and improve your cognitive control and reaction time. This task focuses on suppressing your automatic response to the stimuli.

Memory Matrix - Memory and Retention
Memory Matrix works your memory for shapes, spatial layouts and pattern recall. You must take a quick mental "snapshot" of the grid so you can select the correct squares.

Raindrops - Problem Solving and Processing Speed
Raindrops is designed to improve processing speed through a numerical reasoning task. It emphasizes both speed and accuracy.

Speed Match - Processing Speed and Reaction Time
Speed Match is designed to train and improve your processing speed and reaction time, which is often considered a bottleneck for other cognitive functions.
