One of the most important building blocks of learning is your working memory capacity. Working memory is your ability to hold information in your mind for a brief period of time in order to work with or use that information. This process is essential for all learning. Basic neuroscience research can now be applied to improve your working memory through intensive computerized practice and training at home. It’s called Cogmed Working Memory Training.
Cogmed Working Memory Training is a research-supported way to improve learning by strengthening working memory. With this online brain training program, there are a series of engaging working memory games and challenges. The challenges, like most popular videogames, get progressively harder as your skills improve. This scientifically designed working memory exercise and practice, like physical exercise, leads to improved skill and capacity.
Solid research has shown that this form of training improves working memory and accelerates learning. 80% of users show measureable improvement in working memory and attention. Studies also show improvements in problem solving, reading comprehension, and learning. Cogmed is a proven learning disabilities treatment.
