The Brain-Training Trend

cropped brainSeveral months ago, I wrote a post about Lumosity, a popular “brain-training” tool. I haven’t had the time to complete the program myself, but recently Diane Rehm hosted a show where a variety of brain-training programs were discussed. For a transcript of that show, check out this link.

I think getting a Ph.D in genetics in 2005, further researching and writing about genetics from 2005-2011 and studying for my master’s degree in journalism is probably plenty of brain training, but maybe I’m wrong! I haven’t done the research yet. Let me know what you find.

I’ll return to the topic in the near future and try to decide whether this one belongs in the junk science pile or not.
