Brain Training Report – Robert Dawson – Stage 3, Session 5

Stage: 3

Session number: 5

Average n-back: 2.8

I fluctuated a lot during this one. And, although I didn’t seem distracted, I must have been. It probably doesn’t help that I have my iPhone next to me.

But I am improving, ever so slightly. After 5 sessions, my average has risen from 2.6 to 2.8, which, though small, is definitely noticeable during the session. Now, 2-back seems too easy.

As for how this is affecting me generally, I can confirm a slight headache over the past few days. It might be coincidence, but, if not, then this is the only mental exercise I can remember that has given me one. So, it must be doing something, right? I mean, other than hurting my brain.

Oh, and one tip, which has probably been mentioned a thousand times already but I find helpful nonetheless: Draw lines in your head to connect the dots and keep updating the resulting shapes or paths.
