Several studies have shown that cognitive functions – including memory, attention, multitasking – can be trained.
Our training 'Perception' targets your ability to quickly get an overview of a large amount of information, to analyse it efficiently and react accordingly. On a practical level, this represents your capability to quickly identify the pieces of information relevant to you amidst a large flood of information. This helps you to only focus on the important issues and not get distracted by what is not relevant. Additionally, other exercises in this training also train the ability to pay attention to several different stimuli at once that are requiring your attention.
The training 'Numeracy' targets your handling of numbers and particularly strengthens your mental arithmetic abilities. Mental arithmetic does not only require the ability to solve algebraic equations but also the capacity to temporarily store information in our working memory. A positive side effect of this training is therefore that it also trains the working memory. That way, it strengthens a capacity of yours that is essential to you getting through all the tasks of your daily life.
The goal of our training 'Fluency' is to increase your mental agility and speed of thinking. Furthermore, it targets your working memory and mental performance. Working memory is what helps us store information in our short-term memory, keep it on instant disposal, and align it with new incoming information. It is highly connected to our fluid intelligence, which has a significant influence on our IQ level. (If you would like to challenge your working memory even more intensely, we recommend you train with our course 'Memory' in order to do so).
Nowadays, there isn't any bookstore that doesn't fill its shelves with "how to be happy"-guidance books.

Everywhere you look, books, blogs, websites and TV shows bombard us with tips on how to live, breathe, exercise or eat healthy. Your body's health is well taken care of, but what about your brain?
Decisions. There are two types of making them. One is fast but more prone to errors. The other is slower but more thought through.
If you enjoy brain training but find it difficult to train on a regular basis we have just the right thing for you. Do you ever finish a training session and feel great and happy with yourself, but the next day you already find yourself making up excuses as to why you can’t make the training? Why is it so hard to make something part of our daily life even if we enjoy doing it?
There are many myths about our brain and how it works. Here we talk about the four most common myths and find out whether there is any truth to them.
We are beings of great rationality and sensible thinking. For millions of reasons, we have managed to survive and adapt to ever-changing living conditions and we certainly have to thank our intelligence and rationality for it. But are we only guided by our rational sense? How much does our rational thinking really determine our actions?
