The so-called "workout" is scientifically designed by award-winning neuorscientist Dr. Paul Nussbaum, who lends to the app's authenticity—and helps explain why Fit Brains games have been played an impressive 75 million times.
"The Fit Brains Trainer focuses on building the brain reserve, and a strong reserve is believed to delay the onset of dementia and Alzheimer's Disease," says Dr. Nussbaum. "Maintaining the health and development of the human brain is absolutely critical, so everyone from children to adults can benefit from the Fit Brains Trainer."
The Fit Brains Trainer is a complete brain training system consisting of a collection of fun brain games that tie into the Fit Brains scoring and tracking system. This adaptive learning system automatically scales each game to match a user's level to deliver the appropriate challenge in each of the five cognitive areas. In addition, performance tools allow players to visualize their strengths and weaknesses, while also providing community comparisons based on gender and age.
Fit Brains Trainer is free to download and includes complimentary training sessions to get started, but for full access, a minimum three-month membership is required. Fortunately, membership is pretty cheap: you can gain full access for as less than one dollar per month.
