Brain Games For The Web Generation

Started by a Stanford University graduate, Lumosity is a website that guides you through a series of brain tests that have been designed to increase your brain power (memory, attention, processing speed and cognitive control). A progress tracker records your progress while most of the tests are flash-based.

Lumos Lab lists are many as 8 Ph.D.s who are advisers to the cognitive fitness program. The fees for usage of the website, as expected, as not cheap. There is a 2-week trial after which users will have to pay $79.95 for a full year of usage.

The free Lumosity blog does provide very useful health information for free though.

Full marks for the creative use of technology and full marks for its health benefits. The yearly fee is still too costly in my opinion.
