Brain Training – what is it good for? by Dr Jack Lewis

MEMNEON is a fun, challenging and highly-addictive smartphone game that will increase working memory and thus (according to research by Torkel Klingberg) improve your IQ! Even Stephen Fry – the God-of-Twitter himself – tweeted that MEMNEON was driving him “delightfully dotty.” High praise indeed! The creative director behind Memneon was Steve Turnbull, who would probably feel that for me to suggest that it is “Simon” for the 21st century, would be selling it short. I would disagree. Simon was the original brain training device and, as such, decades ahead of the game. Memneon is like Simon on a high dose of amphetamines.
