Study shows: NeuroNation improves working memory
Prof. Dr. Niedeggen and colleagues at the Free University of Berlin recently conducted a study that found working memory training with NeuroNation to be effective.
After training, participants showed improvements in both NeuroNation exercises used in training, as well as in tests that evaluated their working memory.
The study demonstrated that improvements in cognitive performance following training with NeuroNation are transferable. This means that NeuroNation members can expect to experience their brain training benefits in other parts of their everyday lives as well.
What is working memory?
Your working memory is responsible for remembering and processing information. This is why it is so important in your everyday life - not only to remember our schedule and commitments, but also to solve complex problems quickly.
A stronger working memory saves you time and heartache. It helps you at school, at work, and on a day-to-day basis.
So more about the study…
The four week study was conducted with almost 30 participants who were divided into two groups; one trained their working memory using personalized NeuroNation brain training exercises. The other group (an active control group) trained with mnemonics exercises. Mnemonics are memory techniques that help people to remember information that would otherwise be difficult to recall.
Before and after the four week training, participants were assessed using standardized neuropsychological tests.
What were the results?
The study showed that the NeuroNation working memory group was significantly better at mastering the untrained working memory tests at the end of the training period than the control group who trained with memory techniques.
In essence: memory techniques won't help you get a better working memory, but you will experience improvements by using NeuroNation brain training.
Yet again: NeuroNation is shown to be effective
And NeuroNation doesn’t only help your memory. Studies show that brain training has transferrable benefits to other areas of your life, such as multi-tasking and remembering large volumes of information.Start training
