Luminosity

At Lumos Labs, we believe in improving brains—and lives. That’s why we created a simple online tool to allow anyone to achieve their full potential. Several studies have shown that Lumosity can improve cognitive function in various populations.

The Human Cognition Project (HCP) is a groundbreaking collaboration between researchers worldwide. Neuroscientists, clinicians, teachers, and academics are coming together to advance the field of neuroscience.

Lumosity now has the world’s largest and fastest growing database on human cognition—which currently includes over 40,000,000 research subjects and over 780,000,000 cognitive gameplays. Our scientists mine this data to uncover insights that help them improve the efficacy of the Lumosity cognitive training program.

Brainy App

BrainyApp was developed by Alzheimer’s Australia and Bupa Health Foundation to raise awareness of the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and to help you live a brain healthy life.

There are 267,000 Australians currently living with dementia, with this number increasing to around 580,000 within the next 20 years. But there is something you can do to reduce your risk.

Scientific evidence tells us that certain lifestyle and health behaviours, particularly around midlife (from age 40 to 60), are associated with reduced risk of developing dementia in late life. In fact, changes in the brain that lead to dementia can start when people are in their 30’s and 40’s.

So look after your brain health to reduce your risk of dementia. It’s never too late or early to start, as brain function can be improved and protected at any age.

Use the BrainyApp Survey to find out how brain healthy you are and complete the Activities to watch your brain health score rise.

BrainyApp is available for Apple and Android devices for FREE
