I joined a couple of years ago and barely used it, but about 4 months ago I finally developed a habit of "training" almost every day and now I'm addicted!

I'm curious about it. I want to try my gf's account but apparently they don't have an "off the books" setting.

I started Lumosity last year. I try to do it every day. I started because they had a special and I was worried about my memory slipping. The funny thing is I'm like 95th in my age group for memory according to them so maybe I shouldn't worry.

I also did the brain tests as part of their study. I can see some bias in that I think it should probably be something like best of 3 but from 3 months ago to yesterday, I improved in the brain tests by 13 points. These are 'games' which aren't the same as the normal Lumosity games so I am guessing the theory is if you do Lumosity, you can improve in unrelated games.

I also think there is a natural personal cap on the games. I've felt like some of the games I've hit the cap but then they release new games so it is all good.
