Memory Games

There are several different types of memory: "Working memory" processes information over a span of about 15 seconds, "short-term memory" retains information for up to about 60 seconds and "long-term memory" stores information indefinitely. Sustained practice with memory games helps to strengthen your memory functions.

Attention Games

Attention and focus are critical skills that help us to absorb, process and memorize information. Attention is also involved in processing the details, in understanding a written text and in mentally searching for a particular word or term. Attention exercises strengthen our ability to focus and concentrate on critical information.

Language Games

The ability to use language well is an important part of human cognition and, in contemporary society, verbal skills are of paramount importance. Language games train us to recognize, remember and understand words. They also exercise our fluency, grammatical skills and vocabulary. Further, regular practice can expand our knowledge of new words and make retrieval of familiar ones much easier.

Reasoning Games

Games that challenge our executive functioning help to train and sharpen the highly complex cognitive processes of logic, strategic planning, problem solving, and deductive reasoning. In addition to shaping these abstract processes, the brain's executive system is also required for decision making, recognizing errors, coping with new situations and inhibiting habitual reactions when they are judged to be inappropriate. Thought to be localized mainly in the prefrontal cortex, the executive system has been likened by neuropsychologists to the conductor of an orchestra, helping to direct and control a wide array of diverse mental processes. To extend this metaphor, executive function training gives us the practice and rehearsal we need to keep the symphony of our brain's activity in harmony.

Visual and Spatial Games

Processing visual information in a 3-dimensional world is critical. Our ability to make sense of what we see helps us to interpret and navigate the world around us. Good visual and spatial skills help us to walk, run, drive and enjoy much of the artistry in life. Visual and spatial games give us the opportunity to exercise these skills and help to keep us attuned to what is going on around us.
