I just read a book about a woman with Alzheimer’s in about a day and now I’m really aware of everything I forget. Alzheimer’s has to be so devastating for family members, but what was really compelling was to understand how the person with the disease actually experiences it.
With that on my mind, I’m happy that I’ve signed myself and my family up for Lumosity. Lumosity has been running ads everywhere and I finally succumbed to them. Basically it’s brain games to keep you sharp or even improve your memory. We’ve been having fun with it, though most of my scores aren’t that great compared to others in my age group:
MY BPI =790, 54.1th percentile
Speed = 831, 53.5th percentile
Memory = 779, 49.6th percentile
Attention = 1040, 77.4th percentile
Flexibility = 717, 51st percentile
Problem Solving = 587, 39th percentile
