Whether you want to improve your brain health and performance, or just to have a fun and maintain cognitive functions, this app is for you! ‘Brain Trainer: Tune Up Your Left and Right Brain’ is one of the best brain training apps for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch. For all ages, and it is FREE!

Unlike many other brain training apps, this app is founded on solid scientific ground.

Did you know that the brain can be strengthened just like a muscle? Muscles become stronger with use, and using the brain makes it stronger too.

‘Brain Trainer’ is based on famous “Stroop effect” named after J. Ridley Stroop who discovered the strange phenomenon in the 1930s. He found that when the name of a color (e.g., "blue," "green," or "red") is printed in a color not denoted by the name (e.g., the word "red" printed in blue ink instead of red ink), naming the color of the word takes longer and is more prone to errors than when the color of the ink matches the name of the color. The interference between the different information (what the words say and the color of the words) your brain receives causes a problem. That information comes simultaneously from different brain areas / brain hemispheres. It was later found that the task of selecting an appropriate response actively involves anterior cingulate cortex.

The app has lots of mini-games that help stimulate and develop anterior cingulate cortex that is responsible for working memory, error detection, conflict monitoring, motivation, attention, modulation of emotional responses and many other cognitive functions.

- 12 games
- detailed instructions
- progress report (best / last score)
- performance report (average response time, number of correct/incorrect answers, success rate, medal, etc.)
- sound / music control

Practice daily, try to get higher scores, help your brain to be in good shape!

It’s hard to find an app that is both fun and exercising to your mind. This one does both. So you enjoy doing it and therefore do it more often.

I love this game so much I just wish it had some more games. I focus so much better now though. I also like that you don’t have to be 13 or older just because you need to create an account. I have been trying for years to get a challenging fun and I finally got it. I do think the medals are a little to hard to earn , but it pushes witch is why I like it
