(please see the note at the end of the page and rating this free game)
What you can actually do to make yourself become more intelligent? Is there anything that can make you more intelligent or improve your brain's abilities?
For many years, neuroscientists thought there is any way to increase one's I.Q. as an adult. According to this scientific view, you can do puzzles, performance tasks, resolve problems and learn new things, but doing that you're simply to exercise your brain and not really become more intelligent - because this didn't happen.
But... Recent research shows that this may be wrong.
According to a study published by the University of Michigan (USA), presented at the Association for Psychological Science (Washington), shows that playing “dual n-back” 20 minutes a day of 20 days, may actually improve the working memory (short term memory) and fluid intelligence. The memory task game helps to achieve better results in IQ tests since it increases the ability to reason and develop new problems.
“Fluid Intelligence refers to the ability to reason and to solve new problems independently of previously acquire knowledge” (Jaeggi, M. S., et al., 2008)
The game "n-back", created by W. K. Kirchner, in 1958, is a memory task that encourages the use of "working memory", which has the ability to retain information in short-term memory in an active way, even before interruptions, distractions or interference.
IQ Boost, which is presented here, offers three variants of the "n-back", namely the "dual n-back", which allows display the auditory stimulus at the same rate as spatial stimulus, increasing the difficulty of the game. The difficulty may also be increased by increasing the game’s time and the number of n-previous.
The game, like was presented by the authors’ paper, is quite simple, basically consists of a memory test on a continuous performance task, in which the player saw two series (or only one) of stimuli that were synchronously presented at the rate of 3000ms per stimulus. One string of stimulus consisted of a auditory stimulus (category of animals) whereas the other string of stimulus consisted of individual spatial locations marked on the screen. The task is to decide for each string whether the current stimulus matched the one that was presented n-previous in the series.
This mental exercise is great for children or adults who, when interrupted or distracted by something, have difficulty remembering what he they was doing. The game is especially recommended for students or for people who have a profession that requires great concentration, attention and the use of short-term memory, such as accountants, auditors, computer programmers or traders of the stock market.
Have fun while increasing your mental power ...

NOTE: Some players who don't know how to play this game and not try to learn how, has given a negative rating. Unfortunately, this notation is due to unwillingness to figure out how to play the game.
1- You only need to hit one or two buttons (eye or/and audio image button).
2- If you hit the center of the screen you return to home screen.
3- If you choose spatial mode you continue to hear the audio, but is not considered in scoring (the boys' names and girls' name version the sound is off when you choose spatial mode).
4- The game have 8 different sounds and 8 image positions like the original game, and not 9. Please see the working paper: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2008/04/25/0801268105.full.pdf+html

Sucks!!!!! Worst "game" imaginable.. This is not a game nor is it an IQ booster. It just tells you animal names and if you touch anywhere in the orange, it takes you back to the main menu (where there are incomplete instructions to the so-called "game") Complete waste of time!!! And you have a paid version??? I wouldn't install it even if YOU PAID ME TO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do something conservative if you want to market app... Make also that DON'T SUCK!!!!!!! UNINSTALLED INDEFINITELY!!!!!!!!!!!
Does not work correctly. Goes through one series and then if you press anything it brings you back to the main screen. Uninstalled.
What must I do?? Instructions would be great! I'm finding it hard to actually "play" this game
I clicked single n back and it still gives me dual. Also on 8 spaces are used instead of 9. Would buy if problems were solved. Ineffective as is.
Uhm... Seems good apparently... But I dont get it D: :\ oh and the instructions are cut off >.<
Good...... Good to use.....
Brain game This game is cool
Good I understand the point of the game - IQ is supposed to be the measure of your ability to problem solve and learn new things. The instructions are cut off for this reason. However, uninstalled because I find that having to pay to play longer and rank your scores is ridiculous
Not exactly what I expected... I thought this would be a cool way to improve my own brain but I later (after many trials) soon had no idea on how to play it! I looked over the instructions but no matter what I did, I could not figure it out!!! Make the instructions more clear, please. Thank-you very much.
Not Does not open.
