In September 2009 we teamed up with the BBC's Bang Goes the Theory to launch Brain Test Britain, a unique trial that is seeking an answer to the question: Does braining training really work?
Over 13,000 people participated in Brain Training and the results are now in. The findings show that although people under 60 improved in their performance in individual games, brain training did not improve their overall 'mental fitness'.
However, the brain training trial is continuing with people over 60 to see whether brain training could help to maintain brain function in older people. Alzheimer's Society wants to encourage people over 60 to continue with the trial so that this vital research can be completed.
