We have the pleasure to announces today the release of additional free tasks to its cognitive training platform. The “Twist It” and “Neuron Madness” tasks have been specially designed to train cognitive skills such as focus and planning.
Focus, the ability to sort different visual and auditory stimuli so as to prioritize actions, often requires ignoring certain irrelevant information in order to successfully allocate attention to another. This ability is developed through the years and can be trained over time.
Planning, on the other hand, is the ability to “think ahead”, to mentally anticipate the correct way to execute a task. This cognitive ability involves selecting the activities required to achieve a goal, deciding on their appropriate order and creating a plan.
Gutxi Haitz, Cognitive Tasks Design Manager at CogniFit, explains: “These new brain games have been developed so CogniFit can continue offering the most complete and exhaustive brain training to its users. CogniFit continuously add new tasks to its brain fitness platform to respond to the growing demand of users for useful, effective and diverse brain training tasks. ”
Researchers have shown that the training of cognitive abilities can bring important benefits to the trainees for a large range of needs which may, in turn, be influential in improving quality of life. For example, when setting up the day’s schedule, individuals must consider the tasks that need to be done, where they must go, task priorities and the time required to complete each task.
Training planning can help individuals go through those processes more efficiently. Planning demands creativity which activates the brain and helps to maintain cognitive resources. It can also reduce cognitive decline that can result in lost time and energy.
Decreased planning ability will make things difficult when, for example, people arrange a gathering that involves sending invitations, making phone calls and buying food.
The new tasks are immediately available and free to use on the CogniFit website.
The human brain is a glorious organism capable of wonders. However, like anything else, it must be trained to perform at its finest. Brain training takes many forms and can be implemented into daily activity rather easily with the right attitude. There are several aspects to consider when introducing your brain to a fresh training regimen but there are a plethora of benefits to be garnered from sticking with it.
A healthy diet is also crucial to maintaining a properly functioning brain. Blueberries are among the best foods for a strong mind. Full of antioxidants, the fruit can prevent aging, reduce stress, and improve learning capacity and motor skills. The Omega-3 fatty acids found in seafood like wild salmon, herring, and sardines are essential for your brain to run as a well oiled machine. Vitamin E also contributes to a healthy brain and can found in a vast array of nuts and seeds. Avocados and whole grains are more directly helpful for the cardiovascular systems of the human body but proper blood flow has a large impact on the behavior of the brain.
Honing fine motor skills with cognitive training is a simple technique to get the brain training for future events. Building dexterity and spatial awareness stimulates various sections of the brain and encourages growth and expansion. Learning tricks like juggling, spinning poi, dancing, and other fast paced feats of coordination develop into a better appreciation for the space you inhabit. Even smaller acts of dexterity such as rolling a quarter over your knuckles or typing quickly contribute to your overall brain health.
Recognition and pattern identification are underrated skills we make use of daily but rarely practice. Learning to visually scan your field of view and best associate each part of your vision with a meaningful context is something most people take for granted but is, in fact, an amazing attribute of human evolution that can be fine tuned into an impressive ability. Familiarizing yourself with tasks like mahjong will practice these skills and help make you more effective at day-to-day tasks.
For an increased vocabulary, brain training can be as simple as reading a good book. Without clear definitions, being introduced to new words in their natural context gives examples of proper use and sets a tone for you to remember the word by. A quality author uses a respectable level of vocabulary which encourages his readers to broaden their horizons and experience new perspectives. As children, we learned out first bits of language purely from the context of those speaking around us and this method can be continued well into adulthood.
The brain is the most important muscle in your body and needs to be exercised regularly. By keeping it on a steady diet, practicing dexterity, increasing pattern recognition, and building a vocabulary, your brain training regimen doesn’t have to be an overly complicated process but instead can become a natural part of your standard routine.
