It has been recently scientifically proven that regular mental exercise can significantly improve your memory and this app has been designed to do just that (and be tons of fun as well). In particular, Memory Trainer works out your spatial memory, working memory, focus and concentration skills.
Frequent memory exercises, like the ones in Memory Trainer, help to strengthen and improve your memory.
This was proven in a UCLA study in 2006, published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, which you can read here (http://goo.gl/aiBg). Another benefit of training your memory is that it lowers your risk of Alzheimer's disease. Exercises that keep your mind active, tone your mental muscle and keep your brain healthy. Read more about the link between brain training and Alzheimer's here (http://goo.gl/4AoN).
Memory Trainer helps strengthen your spatial memory.
Spatial memory is the part of memory responsible for recording information about one's environment and its spatial orientation. For example, you use your spatial memory is required when you navigate around a familiar city. You also use this kind of memory when you remember the position of objects as well as visually remembering patterns. By remembering the locations of target tiles in a visual grid, you are actively working out this type of memory when you use Memory Trainer. Scientists think spatial memory is tied to the right hemisphere of the brain.
Daily mental exercise is recommendet for a healthy brain - so use the Memory Trainer as often as possible!
Fixed team facts.
We built N-Back Maestro after reading a scientific study proving that playing the Dual N-Back game, on which we based this app, can measurably increase your fluid intelligence (what you use for problem-solving, learning and pattern recognition).
We took our experience in building world class, genre-leading apps (over 15m downloads) like Memory Trainer and Retro Camera and blended that with a genuine interest in self-improvement to bring you one of the slickest apps on the Market.
You'll love this app. And so will your brain. It would hug you if it could.
This app costs less than a mocha frappucino. What would you say a real opportunity at increasing your intelligence is worth? If you pass on this app, think about that the next time you order a coffee at Starbucks. If you remember.
