Benefits of Long Term Brain Training

A long term (six month) study of the memory benefits of brain training showed that long term training significantly boosted memory scores, while short term training didn’t.

Presented at the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry 2010 Annual Meeting the study focused on elderly adults, splitting the subjects into two groups, one with a delayed start to the training. The subjects in the group with six full months of training showed strong improvement on memory tests. The group with a delayed start had about half the training and showed a slight decrease in memory scores.

This tallies with the results of Mind Sparke customers who train long term. The benefits keep accruing and the cognitive skill improvements on the n-back task increase at a brisk pace on a straight line for two or three full training periods.
