Why Brain Training?

The word 'brain training' was coined in the 1980ies by Siegfried Lehrl but the idea of brain training itself can be traced all the way back to antiquity. But why do we need to train our brains at all? The answer to that question is very simple: in contrast to a computer that stores infomation indefenitely and learns whatever it learns once and for all the brain is much more like a muscle as it obeys the same basic rule of „Use it or lose it“. The notion itself might sound depressing but the analogy goes further than that: Like a muscle the brain can not only be brought back into shape but also significantly improved, i.e. intelligence is in fact trainable!

But what would a good brain work-out look like an how do I become a „brain jock“? First of all a good brain work-out has to be fun and functional, i.e. it is neither supposed to be too easy nor too difficult nor tedious and boring. Much like weights resistance needs to be adjusted to perfectly suit your cognitive abilities and training, of course, must be regular and strictly more than once or twice a week. However it is important to be patient with yourself as the key to success is concentration. So why don't you join the brain gym today and check out all our different exercises?

What is the NeuroNation Concept?

Our goal at NeuroNation is to help you substancially improve your cognitive abilities which will be measured according to five categories:

In training, you can decide what part of your brain you would like to train and choose your favorite exercises. In addition to that, NeuroNation is offering general standartized training sessions of 5 or 10 minutes duration. Generally we recommend you to approach your training in a calm and relaxed state of mind.

Each training session consists of a set of exercises training all five cognitve categories that will be trained one after the other. We strongly recommend you to train several times a week in order to achieve maximum progress. A graphic will help you to keep track of your progress in each exercise. All exercises are specifically designed to be fun and functional and to perfectly suit your cognitive abilities. So challenge yourself and watch your brain performance grow! If however you happen to get stuck at some point with one of the exercises our science page will offer you all sorts of useful advice on how to improve yourself. Did you know for example that it much easier to remember a set of numbers if you connect them to images and little stories? (read more) Your personal training callendar will help you to keep track of how regularly you train. Don't forget that much like any other work-out, brain training needs to be regular in order to be effective. We thus recommend you to take at least two to three training sessions a week if you want to become a real brain jock!

Additonally you can also compare your results to those of other members of our international network and challenge them to a "brain off". If you train hard enough you might become the next NeuroNation brain champion!
