In Defense of Working Memory Training
from Scientific American
One minute we're being told that brain training makes you smarter, and the next minute we're told it's all bogus. Confused? I don't blame you, says Scott Barry Kaufman is adjunct assistant professor of psychology and author of "Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined". The research literature on brain training is confusing and even sometimes contradictory. This is the way of science. I believe, however, that there is hope in making sense of things if the field and the media can move beyond broad conclusions to look at more nuanced effects.
