Neuro-Ludus Provides Fun, Continuous, On-Demand #Brain-Training Anywhere, Anytime, Free for Everyone.
MONTREAL, Dec. 19, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Drawing from its award-winning research in cognitive skills augmentation, Compétences/Skills R&D Inc. has developed the Neuro-Ludus brain training game by dovetailing important discoveries in neuroplasticity, gaming and mobile technology. Neuro-Ludus enables youth and adults to augment their analytical/information processing skills to learn more effectively and achieve peak performance.
In the past, researchers have been constrained in their efforts to help people to improve their analytical/ information processing skills because of a belief that the brain was hard-wired to function in predetermined ways and could not be changed. However, recent brain research focused on neuroplasticity has demonstrated that the brain is "soft-wired" and can be modified with proper training and experience.
To succeed in the information society, people need to have well-developed analytical/information-processing skills. Employers view these skills as essential to achieve a competent and productive workforce. Educators also recognize the importance of these skills to learn effectively throughout life. Additionally, the use of digital technology involves the application of advanced cognitive skills for processing huge amounts of complex information quickly and effectively. These skills regulate the information processing habits representing a person's typical mode of perceiving, visualizing, thinking, problem solving, and remembering.
To mitigate this widening cognitive overload, Neuro-Ludus offers cognitive augmentation brain training to improve analytical/information-processing skills. Neuro-Ludus has a built-in pre-test and post-test to enable players to assess their progress. The game scenario captures players' interest and maintain their engagement:
Following an ecological disaster, some primitive bacteria have attacked the human brain and threaten to erode the superiority of the human race over other living organisms. Save the human race! Play Neuro-Ludus and collect neuro-energy to rewire human brains.
