Brain training

"Brain games are something that you do for fun, and is like going out to play ... Brain training, on the other hand, is more like going to the gym. It’s a system of exercising the brain to improve aspects of cognition like memory, attention, focus, and brain speed." Dr Michael Merzenich (BrainHQ)
