Brain Training Does not Aid Decision-Making
Commercial brain training programs offer people the hope of improving their cognitive abilities through the routine performance of various “brain games” that tap cognitive functions such as memory, attention and cognitive flexibility. However, according to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, such trainings have no effect on the decision making process beyond practice effects on the training tasks.
The study concluded that commercial cognitive training alone would not have an influence on one’s decision making process or cognitive abilities. However, more detailed investigation is warranted for neat conclusions, suggests the research.
