Book Description

Access free Kindle games for brain training. Train your brain, and keep it fit with "Brain games: free games for brain training - Cognitive Enhancement with your natural Nootropic".


"Brain games: freegames for brain training - Cognitive Enhancement with your “natural Nootropic”" is a guide to the advantages of brain training, and to free brain games. Brain games do make a difference in the fitness of your brain. It is never too early to start training our brains and use our potential. Nootropics (also knowns as “smart drugs, memory enhancers, cognitive enhancers, intelligence enhancers”) are supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration. Now, nootropics include brain games, developed by neuroscientists to improve your cognitive functions.

Our skills belong to the category of “use it, or lose it”. Depending on our lifestyle, cognitive activities, etc. there are some brain skills we already use extensively every day. And there are other skills we use more rarely. This booklet introduces you to free and premium brain games that you can play online.

Brain training games are based on the proven fact that living in an enriched environment, with plenty of mental stimulation, keeps our brains active and produces positive brain changes. There’s huge potential for tapping into the brain’s ability to change itself by remodeling nerve cell connections after experience. This enhances mental fitness and prevent age-related memory decline. Plus, the best brain games on the market, like Lumosity, are created by brilliant neuroscientists, who are aware of how to structure the games based on the desired cognitive skill development outcome.

Quoting the Scientific American: "As Glenn Smith of Mayo Clinic and her colleagues report, cognitively normal older adults who trained their brain were able to improve their auditory information processing speed by about 58 percent (versus 7 percent in controls)". Research at Pennsylvania State University proved that brain exercises, focusing on training reasoning skills, do translate into long-lasting improvements in daily life. Groups trained in reasoning, using computer brain games, showed better performance on daily activities, while a control group which did not take part in such exercises showed a decline). These results suggest that a short training session, plus periodic boosters, may induce long-lasting cognitive and functional benefits—sort of a “teaching a person to fish for life” effect.

not a kindle game, more a list of websites to brain games plus some dull technical brain theories- don`t waste your brain space on this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not spectacular and hardly as advertised April 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having suffered from a neurological disorder (diagnosed as multiple sclerosis, but I am not sure that I am buying it), I am constantly on the lookout for things that might help me to improve my cognitive ability. While I was hospitalized during the worst of my symptoms, I found that by simply playing sudoku I could actually reduce some of the symptoms. As such, Brain games: free games for brain training - Cognitive Enhancement with your "natural Nootropic" appealed to me as something that might help. While the 'book' has some interesting points in the appendices, the book itself has little to do with brain games. It provides a link to a blog that displays 5 games - really, only 3 unique games but there are 2 versions of 2 of those games - and some links to other game sites. Fortunately for me, the $4.98 price tag was covered by a gift card for me, so this truly cost me nothing to buy. Unfortunately, it isn't even worth it as a free 'book.' Had the title been something more appropriate such as "The Collected Articles of Frank Ra," I doubt that it would ever sell.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mis-use of the the word free March 30, 2012
By DC
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this might be neat,so I downloaded it. After downloading the app, you then find out there is a monthly fee. If I has known that to begin with, I might have done it, but I do not like to feel like I am being tricked!!

This came up in search as Luminosity. It is not. You can not do anything. Some of the links are broken.

1.0 out of 5 stars A scam and not worth your money February 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is just 25 pages long. Of those, maybe 7 pages talk about actual games. There are some links to sites that offer "brain games," most of which are on the main website associated with this book. The rest of the book, the majority of the content, is basically mindless garbage about "happiness and meaning."

This is basically a scam. It's a book with minimal content that tries to get you to their website to sign up for courses. At their website, you can find people like:

"Dharma instructor, well-being facilitator, advaitan, traveler. Being in becoming. Here, you find inspirations about cultivating joyful living for the benefit of all beings. Please, take a look at our book 'A course in happiness' and eCourse 'Happier 2012'. THANKS!"

One additional sign that this is a scam is that they mask the parent site they are trying to send you to by using the tinyurl redirector (e.g., tinyurl.com/BrainEntrainmentTheta). And no, I'm not going to send you to that site as it's a complete waste of time. Overall, there are pointers to perhaps a dozen games; the rest of the content is all about their scam website.

There's no useful information in the book and no games that you can't find for free in any app store or on the web. You're better off doing a Google search for "brain games." You'll get much better results and you won't have to pay a nickel.
