    Abstract

    Although some studies have been carried out about brain training exercises there is little proof that using tools like computer games or any other mental training devices could train our brain or delay the age related decline in cognitive abilities. Even so, electronic game producers have been active in designing special brain training software and computer games for aging persons who have not been too interested in computer games before. This paper describes user experiences of one of those commercial brain training games.
