The Free Kindle Book of the Day is Brain Games by Frank Ar. From the synopsis:
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.
