is an online program consisting of games claiming to improve memory, attention, flexibility, speed of processing, and problem solving. Lumosity is the product of Lumos Labs, a brain training and neuroscience research company based in San Francisco, California.
There is limited independent evidence that these games are effective, and the company’s claims for them have been found to be misleading by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

THE STORY BEHIND LUMOSITY
We’re a team of scientists and designers exploring new ways to challenge the brain and push cognitive research forward.
Our scientists take common cognitive and neuropsychological tasks, or design entirely new, experimental challenges. Working with experienced designers, they transform these tasks into fun games that challenge core cognitive skills.
We also work with 40+ university researchers worldwide. We give qualified researchers free access to Lumosity training and tools — helping them investigate new areas in cognition.
As we learn more about the possibilities of brain training, we invite you to train with us, and join us in our mission to advance the understanding of human cognition.
