Brain Training Report – miguel – Stage 1, Session 3

Stage: 1

Session number: 3

Average n-back: 4.2

Well, the first time I used it I started with 2, then went to 3, then to 4 and even completed some 5s. I felt great, but then after the second day ive been stuck at 4 and making mistakes once in a while. I feel I have a harder time concentrating than on the first day… I find myself thinking about something else and have to force myself to concentrate. Is this normal?

    Hello, Miguel.

    Some people find it easier to concentrate at first. You may have the kind of brain that easily picks up new skills but tires easily. However, concentration can also vary dramatically from day to day, so it may just be temporary.

    There are various strategies for aiding concentration. Here are a few:

    1. Make sure you’re rested when you train
    2. Do some cardiovascular exercise prior to training, get the blood flowing
    3. Meditate before training
    4. Center your thoughts and apply willpower to remembering the first few items in a sequence—this can then spill over to the rest
    5. If you’re distracted during a block and completely lose focus, stop the block, regroup and start again

    The computer-based training is intended for occasional use when you can’t connect online. It does not synchronize with the online statistics and it does not contain the full training suite.

    Best wishes,
