Online Study: The UCR Brain Game Center for Mental Fitness and Well-being is recruiting participants for a large online study that is funded by the National Institute of Health to better understand how working memory training may lead to cognitive benefits. I am forwarding this message as I thought that you may be interested in being part of the study. Participation in the study is strictly voluntary and there will be no penalty to you for not participating.

To enroll, simply follow the link here:

You must be 18 years or older to participate and if chosen, you'll be asked to fill out some surveys, conduct a few cognitive tests and complete the working memory training. The study is only 11 business days long and is done all within the comfort of your home on your personal phone or tablet.

Not only will you receive access to our brain training software for free, but there are also give-aways that provide opportunities to win rewards such as gift cards valued $5-100 or the grand prize of a brand new iPad!
