Is the research behind the claims of websites like www.lumosity.com legit? I understand that the fee to use them (beyond the free games) is like paying for any game, in a way, but are the claims to help legit? Seems like the amount of play would have something to do with any possible result, so they cann’t promise much.
How funny; I came here to ask basically the same question. Anyone?
They don’t according to the study reported by the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/8630588.stm
