Brain Games and Brain Training are Different

In the last week, we came across another study that says that neuroscientists have debunked the claims that a brain game results in a brain gain.  No kidding!Research scientists seem to be in love with the idea of contradicting the market hype about the value of brain games.  And that’s a good thing.  There is far too much hype.  And too little understanding of the difference between a brain game and serious cognitive training (also called brain-training). Saying that a typical “brain game” can yield measurable cognitive benefit that translates into real-world improvements is like saying that exercising the biceps of your left arm will lead to overall physical fitness.
