Cognitive training exercises target a group of mental processes that include attention, memory, producing and understanding language, learning, reasoning, problem solving and decision-making.
Cognitive training exercises provide mental benefits for people of all ages.

While you’re having fun playing games, you’ll forget that you’re also training your brain.
Over 35 million people and climbing already use Lumosity.com with positive results.
“Competitive rowing requires focus, flexibility, alertness, and strong peripheral vision. Lumosity training has increased all these for me: I am able to maintain my focus on the finish line for the last kilometer of each head race, I am able to adapt to new situations I encounter during these events, I am much more focused on the task at hand during training and racing, and I have increased the range of my peripheral vision. Thanks, Lumosity, for helping a fifty-something win medals!”

It’s possible that cognitive training exercises provide mental benefits for people suffering from dementia, as well. Although more studies need to be conducted in order to state that cognitive training exercises can prevent or delay dementia, such as Alzheimer’s, a WebMD article stated that a number of studies have shown the benefits of staying mentally active.
“I play to keep up with my 2-year old and to hopefully stave off Alzheimer’s or any other deterioration of the brain.”
