Fascinating and in-depth article in the NY Times Magazine about the latest iteration of “brain-training” games and programs. Combining better understanding of the brain’s plasticity (the ability to grow and adapt and create new neural pathways) and the idea that “practice makes better” finally seems to be paying off.
I’ll write more on this subject, but for now please read the article.
What do you think, is intelligence a fixed commodity or is it fluid and can you “grow more if it?”
