Can brain training increase intelligence?
Let’s test it.
Dual N Back:
This field of research is still relatively new, and results have been mixed, but many studies suggest that brain training challenges (such as dual n back) can increase your IQ / fluid intelligence.
“Fluid intelligence measures how people adapt to new situations and solve problems they’ve never seen before.” (Alexis Madrigal, wired article, 2008)
- Memory Improvements
- Pattern Recognition / Connectivity
- Faster Problem solving
- Improved Focus / Attention
In the end, there’s only one way to know for sure — Test it for ourselves.
I’ll be testing dual n back with —
20 round (about 20 – 25 minutes) per day, for 4 weeks.
I’ll periodically post my thoughts and results as I go (so be sure to check in!)
