Alzheimer Insights by CurationHealth
People who promote brain-training games claim that they help brains perform better, while critics claim that the game publishers are exploiting people’s anxieties for profit. Who’s right?
Perhaps the question about who’s right is less significant than the one about what works. We are okay with grocers exploiting people’s hunger to sell food. A fairer criticism of these games seems to be that you need to be sat at your computer to play them, when a healthier option might be talking to your family or going for a walk. As to the games themselves, they seem to assist in improving focus, but on the question of whether they increase mental capacity for anything other than the games themselves, the evidence is not yet compelling.
