Brain Training Report – John-Stage 3, Session 6

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Session number: 06

Average n-back: 2.3

Duration (estimate in minutes): 15

After completing my first four sessions in stage three, I was unable to reach N3; this is very discouraging. It seems that my advances are minuscule in comparison to the time spent. Continuing diligently though, with the hope that if consistent, my cognitive abilities will gradually increase.

Over the last several months i have focused on my sleep, nutrition, and exercise. This is beginning to show some promise. Being constant in these areas has afforded me noticeable improvements in my attention, short term memory, and processing speed.

During Session 5,6, finally, I have broken through, to some extent, and was able to advance six times to N3. Obviously I would rather be a N4 or N5, but in time these levels will be attainable.

Merry Christmas to all.

Brain Training Report – john

Session number: 01

Average n-back: 4.3

Duration (estimate in minutes): 15

Hello Everyone,

This is my first session of the online version of the software. I’m very excited about the interaction and the meditation portion of the program. I’ve been on Stage 2 for the last 36 sessions. I don’t think I’ve made the gains I should be making after so many sessions.

My overall Visual and Aural after 35 sessions of stage two are 5.57 and 4.33 respectively. Although it says my overall average score is 6. I usually disregard this score…I look more to the individual performance of the V/A for each session to determine my progress. My rationale might be hindering my progress. I probably need to get back to the basics.

Brain Fitness Students from the Downy Adult School

Brain Fitness Students from the Downy Adult School

point to one of the ways that brain fitness programs will gain greater prominence in society over time. The Downy Adult School now offers Brain Fitness classes with computer-based brain training. The students work their brains for 45 hours over the course of the program. (It doesn’t mention the particular training method used, nor whether there is any measurement of the results.)
