Brain Training Report – Ray – Session 19

Session number: 19

Average n-back: 5.75

Duration (estimate in minutes): 30

I finished the 19 sessions. From a starting point of difficulty with n-3 I got to where I did reasonably well with n-6. I only have a few n-7.
After a little more than a week I tried another session to see if there was any loss of progress. I averaged 5.70 so not much difference.
As a base line I took the GIQtest online at the start and again at a week after finishing the course. I had a gain of 10 points. I actually did better in areas I did not think the training would affect. Maybe it is concentration improvement. I will continue on at 2 or 3 sessions per week and see if I can get past that n-6 mark.
Subjectively I have seen improvements in various activities. Filling out forms and remembering things like my passport number without looking back several times. My German lessons seem to go better. I retain the words better.
One of my main goals was to improve my chess playing through better memory. This will not be instant since the improvement is not by just memory but by what has been memorized, at least partly. But I have to say that my analysis of positions without moving the pieces has improved already and this is a help.
