The brain is one of the great frontiers of modern science. There is simply so much we don't know about it, but as we learn more, we've discovered that you can maintain mental fitness, just like how exercise keeps your body in shape. NeuroNation makes mental fitness easy and entertaining with a series of brain games tailored just for you. With a list price of $84, a 1-year subscription is on sale now for just $39.99.
A Mental Gym
Like any skill, the basic functions of your brain need to be trained and kept up to date, or otherwise they'll begin to slip. While in some cases that slippage can point towards more serious concerns down the road, even people with no history of neurological problems can still experience a deterioration of their sharpness.
Forgetting important appointments, being unable to find your keys, struggling to keep short-term information, all can be fixed and avoided with practice. NeuroNation provides that practice.
The Brain Game
Rooted in research by the Free University of Berlin, NeuroNation builds off of evidence that practicing certain mental skills helps you maintain them. It might even change the structure of the brain, making it more effective against certain neurological problems. One study conducted by the company found that users reported better short-term memory, or in other words, no more lost keys.
When you first start the app, you'll take a test that looks at four main areas, and saves your results. Then, with 15 minutes a day, the app uses those benchmarks to hone your mind with progressively more complex exercises. As you practice, you can track your progress and monitor shifts as you build mental fitness. It's perfect for taking a break from work, decompressing from a tough task, and for making your commute more productive.
