davide-nature writes: If you play the brain training game Double Decision, your cognitive fitness will improve, and it will be noticeably better even a year later. Scientists made people over the age of 50 play the game, which is designed to boost the speed at which players process visual stimuli. A year later, people who had played for just 10 hours had better skills than those who didn't — at least when it came to the Useful Field of View test, a cognitive test which requires a subject to identify items in a scene with just a quick glance. Anyone can test themselves (but it's not free): Double Decision is distributed by a software company in San Francisco called Posit Science.
