SCIENCE BEHIND LUMOSITY
Lumosity is designed by neuroscientists to train memory, attention, and more. With foundations in the study of neuroplasticity, Lumosity games are used in research, and have been incorporated into studies done by top scientists worldwide.
IN THE NEWS
Harvard Business Review
"Designed by neuroscientists, a brain training approach such as Lumosity builds on breakthrough concepts such as neuroplasticity and fluid intelligence."
"The mini-games are fun rather than dry, making it a daily habit that never feels like a chore."
"Like dancing to burn calories, several of Lumosity’s games make it easy for you to forget that you’re giving your brain a workout."
"The app itself is very clean, and performance is excellent."
Wall Street Journal
"The games offer a scorecard of your performance and let you follow changes in performance over time, so you can see if you're getting better or backsliding."
"I’ve found the Lumosity training fun, challenging, and—as it only takes 15 or 20 minutes a day—brief enough that it doesn’t become a time-sink."

THE SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND BEHIND NEURONATION'S BRAIN TRAINING
A recently published study by Freie University Berlin demonstrated the effectiveness of NeuroNation's brain training. All brain games were developed in cooperation with renowned neuroscientists and are based on state of the art scientific research.
According to scientific studies what is true for our muscles is also true for our brain: Use it or lose it. Following from this research, you have the your brain performance in your hands. Train your brain with scientifically developed exercises.
World Memory Champion Gunther Karsten, PhD., about NeuroNation's brain games: “I don't know any other program that is equally intensive and effective. You have to test your limits in order for your brain to grow!“
Professor Falkenstein, M.D., about the NeuroNation memory exercises:
“People can improve their cognitive abilities by means of exercising with specific cognitive training. NeuroNation provides users with an array of exercises that are easy to use and motivating, at the same time. In fact, I myself like to train with NeuroNation.“

The intelligent algorithm controls itself the whole learning process and recognises how well you translate the words. Accordingly, it shows new words or repeats additionally the older ones. Or they are included in “problematic words”.
Problematic words are such words where you have the greatest lack of knowledge (the application will recognize them itself). They can be practiced individually or only went through later.
A corresponding image for view and also a high-quality audio track, which will teach you the correct pronunciation, are included for each word as a matter of course.
Other application options include e.g. the unlimited creation of user lessons, a well-arranged vocabulary or statistics which keep the previous achieved results. The Google Translate service, backing your own created data and other options are also available.
Languages available (both application and learning):
and others are in preparation.
Please try a free demo version with 3 test lessons. The full version is available here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.android.easyWordsFull with more than 1300 words and 44 lessons.

With analytical tools embedded in it neuron gym assures to track your performance with time for optimum results. The analysis is shown in the form of simple graphs pointing the strong & weak areas of your brain. Using principles of standardized testing, your scores are also converted to a standardized scale known as ANI (Average Neuron Index). ANI is a uniform measure and thus helps you to better analyse your performance.

Schulte table - perhaps the most effective
way to do this.
The program is free and contains no advertising.
About Schulte tables.
Psychologists like Schulte tables tests. These tests are simple, understandable, easy to measure the results and interpret. Tests show:
- attention sustention,
- the dynamics of efficiency,
- the ability to quickly start to work
- mental stability
Advantages tables Schulte:
+ Simple and clear
+ Quickly activates thought processes and memory
+ Training skills faster decision making
+ Does not require much effort
The benefits of mobile application "Immersion":
+ You can use small periods of time (one minute)
+ Spend with benefit and pleasure painful waiting period (in line, in traffic, public transportation, the bus stop
Schulte table for brain development and intelligence.
I suggest a little digest of the book by Anton Moguchy "book-training for your brain and the subconscious"
== the digest start ==
To succeed in any issue and use our brains to solve the problem completely, you must:
1. Strengthen blood flow in the frontal lobes of the brain.
2. Mobilize the memory so that all the necessary information we now shifted from long-term memory. Thus, we assemble accumulated associative links of our brains that are relevant to the topic. We will not waste precious seconds in recollection, all the necessary information will be "over the surface."
3. Focus on the task competently. In one case, you need to concentrate, so nothing distracts not see or hear. In another - quickly shift attention. In the third - keep the attention of all that surrounds us.
As a result an interesting series of experiments were done two things:
1. Each new task, to present the subject is causing a noticeable blood flow to the frontal lobes of the cerebral cortex. With repeated presentation of the same task intensity of blood flow is significantly reduced.
2. The intensity of the flow depended not only on the novelty, but also on the nature of the tasks. The highest intensity was recorded when working with tables Schulte.
Why is that?
When working with tables Schulte, we do not recall, no add-subtract, multiply, not referring to the associations. In this way, the whole blood is sent to the frontal lobes, which opens our entire intellectual potential.
== the digest end ==
1. Schulte table sizes from 2x2 to 10x10.
2. Two modes of training: -
"Finger": each number is fixed by pressing a cell; -
"Eye": just look;
3. Statistics - The last time exercise;
-- The degree of uniformity of the last exercise - tactile mode only;
-- Timeline for the last table of training;
-- Graphs of the best and the average times for training for all time;
4. Ability to stop the exercise.
If something prevented complete the exercise, it does not get in the statistics.
5. 2 themes: -
Minimalism - calm black-white-gray
Caramel - for those who prefer brighter
6. Ability to prevent screen blanking
My plans for the development of the application:
-- A separate design for large screens (for tablets).
-- A mode of two colors (Table Gorbova-Schulte).
-- Maybe you can tell something.
