Last week I was contacted by Brain Test Britain, the BBC sponsored brain training experiment looking to further document the effects of actively training our brains.
They were looking for some insight as to what it is we do here at Brain Training 101, and what types of people are currently doing some sort of brain training.
If you haven’t heard of Brain Test Britain, you’ll want to check it out. The study is currently open and looking for new participants.
You’ll be asked to register and complete a benchmarking test to give researchers an idea of your brain function starting point. Then you’ll train for ten minutes three times a week. They need you to train for at least six weeks to make your results relevant, but they’d prefer you to continue for up to a year.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older, and you do not need to reside in the U.K.
If you decide to participate, let me know in the comments below. I’d love to know what you think of the study.
