Acuity Games Responds to "Brain Games Are Bogus"
Date:5/2/2013

Pompton Plains, NJ (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

The New Yorker’s website published an article proclaiming, “Brain Games are Bogus” on April 5. Acuity Games, agrees with the research, but rejects the conclusion.

The article questions the benefits of brain games that are based upon working-memory training. Citing research from Georgia Tech and the University of Oslo, the article concludes that this approach is largely ineffective.

“Does anyone really think a few minutes a week of ‘brain training’ is going to produce significant brain fitness results?” asks Dan Hansen, founder of Acuity Games. “The research is clear, a combination of healthy diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, reduced stress, active social connections and mental stimulation is what drives brain fitness.”

“But the fact remains that 2 billion people will be at risk of suffering from dementia by 2050. Dementia prevention requires improving the brain fitness results of lifestyle choices in the years before becoming at risk for the disease. The best way to improve results is to measure them; that’s why Acuity Games apps focus on Lifetime Brain Fitness Measurement, and not mental stimulation alone. Acuity Games are a scale for your brain,” he concluded.
