Why do I bother when the best I am given is somply ten?

Why is this so? After all the ones who flood th ALL page. tje privileged, do not seem to do so well either

But it is a little light relief and something that interests me, but the incentive to do more is almost zilch.

Power Up With This Protein

How do you prefer your protein: finned or with feathers? According to one study, your choice may have a huge impact on your brain health. Find out which smart protein may fight inflammation and help lower your risk of dementia by up to 20%

Choose This Protein for More Mental Power

Chicken or fish? It's not just a choice you make at wedding receptions. Your answer could be a ticket to a healthier mind, too.

A recent study suggests that regularly opting for the right kind of protein could mean a significantly lower risk of dementia later in life. And your brain will thank you if you choose finned foods.

The Fin Factor

The study evaluated the health and eating habits of close to 15,000 people age 65 and older from countries around the world, including Peru, China, India, Venezuela, Cuba, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. And the people who ate fish often -- nearly every day -- were about 20 percent less likely to be diagnosed with dementia compared with the folks who never ate fish. Researchers suspect that the inflammation-fighting omega-3 fatty acids in fish produce the benefit.

Something in the Water?

So here's what you should choose at each meal if you don't care much about your brain: meat. In the study, the more meat people ate (think beef, chicken, and pork) the higher their risk of dementia. So start making over your meals, and be sure to invite your friends from the sea.

Find out why combining antioxidant-rich fruit and fatty-acid-rich fish is so good for your brain.

RealAge Benefits

Eating nonfried fish three times a week can make your RealAge up to 3 years younger.

brain gaming games lumosity stroop test

Did you know that the Lumosity game Color Match is based on the Stroop Test? Named for John Ridley Stroop, the Stroop Test is a widely used neuropsychological assessment.

The science behind Color Match

On their blog they write:

Science Behind the Game: Color Match

John Ridley Stroop and Response Inhibition

If you train on Lumosity regularly, you’re probably familiar with our game Color Match. What you may not know is that this game is adapted from an important neuropsychological assessment, the Stroop Test.

The Stroop Test is much more challenging than it may seem at first glance — identifying the color of the word is much harder when the color doesn’t match the word’s meaning. The Stroop Test highlights the importance of response inhibition, or your ability to suppress impulsive reactions that interfere with goal-directed actions.

A Brief History of the Stroop Test

In 1935, John Ridley Stroop became the first to publish the current version of this cognitive task in English. Developed as part of his dissertation at George Peabody College, his task became the basis of the Stroop Test — and it remains a widely used neuropsychological assessment to this day.

How Your Brain Processes the Stroop Test

The Stroop Test challenges your mental flexibility — you have to be able to inhibit incorrect responses while responding quickly, a capacity associated with the brain’s executive function. Without good response inhibition, it’s easy to make errors (such as reading the word instead of saying its color). In fact, brain imaging studies show that performing the Stroop Test activates the anterior cingulate cortex and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex — brain areas involved in catching errors and resolving conflicting information.

Also key to mastering the Stroop Test is selective attention, or your ability to carefully choose what information to focus on — and what to ignore. Individuals with conditions that impact their ability to control reactions and pay attention often have a much harder time performing the Stroop Test.

Training with the Stroop Test

Our Color Match game is an updated version of the Stroop Test and emphasizes practicing response inhibition.

In the game, you’re presented with a series of two cards. Your job is to quickly determine if the first card’s meaning matches the second card’s text color. For instance, the first card may read “black” and the second card may read “yellow,” but if yellow is written in black, you choose “yes.” If yellow is written in any color other than black — blue, red, or yellow — the meaning and text color don’t match, so you choose “no.” Keep in mind that the meaning and text color may not match within the first card, too — that “black” may be written in yellow — so you need to quickly switch focus between the pertinent information from one card to the next.

You can find Color Match on and on our iOS and Android apps.
