I have always been in favour of the more pharmological approach to increasing cognition and never really believed in the brain training games - but people seem to suggest this lumosity site actually is valid - can anyone suggest, is it worth paying a subscription for? many thanks
I'm not sure why you don't believe in brain training games. As one poster aptly put it, nootropics without mental exercise is like steroids without physical exercise. Do you honestly not believe go/weiqi, chess, word puzzles, and dual-n-back improve mental function?
I don't know if lumosity itself is "valid", I've never used that specifically so I don't know exactly how their games or program works. I mostly use freely available games.
