I’m a firm believer in common sense. So, when articles started coming out a few years ago about all of those “brain game” programs only improving ones ability to play that particular game, but not improving overall cognition, that made sense to me. But similarly, it also makes sense to me that your brain needs exercise, and if you’re not exercising it, it will lose function. Therefore, it comes as no surprise at all that a general brain fitness program can improve cognition. Go exercise your brain!
