Scottish Schoolchildren Brain Training

Collaborating with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education and the University of Dundee, Teaching and Learning Scotland measured the effects of using the Nintendo Brain Age game for twenty minutes per day over a ten week period. In comparison to a control group the students improved scores on a post test by more than 50%.

With 32 schools and 600 children, this study confirmed the findings of an earlier smaller study in Dundee.

More evidence of plasticity and the value of brain training.
