Myth 9 : Games Improve Cognition


Truth: Brain training games will not make you smarter!

Although games designed to improve memory , attention, and general problem solving do seem to improve these skills  while you are playing the games, the results don’t actually translate into the real world.  You are actually getting better because you are learning to beat the game. The games teach you how to improve on the task at hand not on a general skill. Games are fun so by all means carry on, but f you’re spending hundreds of dollars on this gimmick  trust me, you’re better off having a cup of coffee.
