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."

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.
Also it used in speed reading training.
Rules of work with Schulte tables:
Find and click figures silently, in an increasing order from 1 to 25 (without omission). The found figures are specified only by a sight. As a result of such training time of reading of one table should be no more than 25 sec.
Before the beginning of work with the table the sight is fixed in its centre to see the table entirely.
By search of figures following one after another fixing of eyes only in the table centre is authorised. Horizontal movements of eyes are forbidden. Distance from the table to eyes same, as well as at reading of the usual text, i.e. About 25-30 sm.
Time and periodicity of trainings establish, remembering that it is not necessary to overtire.
While working with Schulte tables it is necessary to remember that training here not the aim. The main thing — expansion of a field of vision that can be reached by accurate following the rules of work with tables, the regular and realised trainings.
It is rather simple to learn speed reading, everyone can do it. Speed reading is a habit of perception of text information, and also speed of its understanding and learning. Developing the skill of speed reading you considerably develop speed of information perception, actively train your attention, improve your memory, and speed of your mental processing increases by 2-3 times. The regular practice of speed reading also improves general intelligence level.
It is known that many successful people have the skill of speed reading. Thanks to it they can perceive information more quickly, save time for searching the necessary information in a text, and, therefore, they make decisions more quickly. Now you can do it as well. Study and gradually increase speed of delivery of text information, and you will create a new habit of thinking and fast perception of information. Exercises for development of speed reading ReadRace and specially developed algorithm of delivery of information will help you.
The new Read Race program has united functions of the speed reading trainer and e-book reader. Load electronic books and text information in any language and study using your computer or mobile device.
Train with ReadRace and read in a speed reading mode in your native or any foreign language!
This application plays rhythm to suppress articulation. Rhythm (Beat) 200-200-400-400-800-800-800-800 ms.The application also takes the time listening to the rhythm (reading time).
Articulatory suppression is the process of inhibiting memory performance by speaking while being presented with an item to remember. Most research demonstrates articulatory suppression by requiring an individual to repeatedly say an irrelevant speech sound out loud while being presented with a list of words to recall shortly after. The individual experiences four stages when repeating the irrelevant sound: the intention to speak, programming the speech, articulating the sound or word, and receiving auditory feedback
1. Tap rhythm by strikes at one point.
2. Tap rhythm by strikes of the active movement of the entire hand firmly and confidently, clearly.
3. When reading about myself while tapping constantly listening to supervise the correct rhythm and mainly its continuity. Not to shoot down the pace.

Tap the numbers - the best number game designed to train peripheral vision, memory, speed, agility and concentration. This game is based on Schulte Tables, Schulte tables can help speed the development of mental perception, including visual directional speed search movement. They are used to improve attention, self-control and the distribution ability to focus but to improve the stability of vision, discernment, directed search capabilities as well. The longer the practice, the shorter time needed to read the whole table. With in-depth practice, even the beginners can expand and accelerate reading and recognizing capability by vertical and horizontal expansion of vision. Ultimately these tables can be used to increase fast reading and attention. Each table is sorted by character or numeric order. How long should be needed to find all the characters or numbers in order? The shorter the better. On average, a second per cell is excellent, e.g. 36 second for 36 cells.
* Train reaction by speeding up decisions you made - try to decide without actual thinking about it.
* Train peripheral vision by looking at whole field searching for a number
* Train memory by remembering where is the next number you need to tap!
* Train speed and concentration by trying to beat the records you made!
How To Play?
This is a true number game. You have board filled with numbers starting from 1 to 36 painted in colors. Tap numbers one by one as fast as you can!
Comparing to other similar games numbers painted in different colors brings much more fun and results! Different colors trains peripheral vision and memory much better because each field is different.
Your aim is to tap all the numbers one by one starting from 1 to 36 as fast as possible. It is not so easy, try it and compare result with following:
1. Less than 30 seconds - you have an excellent memory and peripheral vision. You sure speed reading is not a problem for you.
2. Up to one minute - quite good result, you always have a room for improvement. Use the game to train speed reading, memory and be sure your speed reading results will become better with each day you spend in application.
3. More than 1 minute - excellent observance and excellent patience! But, you have a room for improvement.
Check your results with your friend - find who is the best one!
Comparing to similar games:
1. Fields painted in different colors! Much more fun with it!
2. Field is generated from scratch on each game run!
3. Leader board exists! This will remember you that was the previous result.
4. Time is running in the game. It has own timer!
5. Scores are based on time you spend searching for a number. Try to spend less time and see how you improve!
This speed reading app is a fun, effective and FREE way to increase your reading abilities. This app uses the fundamentals of metaguiding and viewing exercises to train your eyes to process text quicker. We have also included a diagnostic tool so you can check your progress as you read!
The average adult reads at about 250 words per minutes with a 70% comprehension rate. Students who have used the Ivy Standard system have seen increases of up to 500 WPM in as little as two weeks of use.
Development of this app is made possible through support from our sponsors. If you would like an ad-free version (as well as unlimited speeds, comprehension questions, and integration options), try the full version of this app!
Q: Why does this app require permissions?
A: Basically, we use these permissions to run basic app functions:
Internet / Network State
Our app pulls reading material and comprehension questions from a central database so that you can see updated books / questions without having to download a new version of the app. Every time you open the app, the database is updated! Since this is only text (and occasionally a small cover picture) data usage should be very minimal.
Write / Storage Permissions / Phone State
We need to write the downloaded data onto your device for two reasons:
-to allow you to use our program in the event that you do not have an internet connection
-to save bandwidth so you don't need to download the data if you already have it!
Once again, the data we store is only text, so space used is minimal (usually under 1 MB).
**We do not collect any personally identifying information or store any other unwanted information on your device!
