When do you train on Lumosity? Our data scientists have been investigating the impact of lifestyle factors like sleep, mood, and time of day on performance across different Lumosity games.

A recent study leveraged Lumosity data to examine the learning process in the context of cognitive tasks. The study, “Piecewise Power Laws in Individual Learning Curves,” found that traditional models of the learning curve may be inadequate to describe the complexity of the learning process.

Traditionally, psychologists visualize the learning process as a smooth curve -- one that slopes upwards but at a diminishing rate as time goes by, so eventually learning seems to plateau. However, the study found that the learning process may be better represented by a sequence of learning curve pieces, with distinct transition points from one piece to the next. These findings support the idea that learning isn’t a smooth process, but is instead comprised of fits and starts and transitions that launch you into the next level of performance -- at least in the context of these cognitive tasks.

A compound in extra-virgin olive oil called oleocanthal may help protect your brain against plaques related to Alzheimer’s disease! Previous research showed that oleocanthal can protect nerve cells from damage in brains that are already affected by Alzheimer's, but new research shows it can actually decrease levels of amyloid beta (which is known to play a role in Alzheimer’s) in the brain. Do you already enjoy a diet rich in olive oil? Share this good news with friends, and let us know in the comments.

How much sunshine you get during the day can affect how well you sleep at night. A 2013 study found that people who work in offices with windows slept an average of 46 minutes longer than their peers in windowless offices. Workers exposed to sunlight during the day also tended to get more physical exercise and reported an overall higher quality of life. Luckily, you can counteract a windowless workspace by getting an extra dose of sunshine in the morning; past research shows that exposing yourself to early morning sun is linked to sounder sleep at night. Do you get enough sunshine during the day? Share this post with friends and let us know in the comments.

From the team behind Lumosity:

Welcome to LumiKids Beach, the second iPad app in our emerging LumiKids series! Drawing upon research in child psychology, developmental neuroscience, and education, our team has been hard at work thinking up new play-based activities. Watch your kids giggle as they practice cognitive, motor, and social-emotional skills.

At LumiKids Beach, your little ones will practice a variety of skills, from sharing to fine-motor coordination to response inhibition -- all through a series of delightful, adaptive activities. As parents and caregivers, you’ll gain insights into your child’s play and receive tips on how to continue practicing important skills offline.

LumiKids Beach is now available to download from the app store: https://app.adjust.io/xqcr9t

Different people excel at different Lumosity games. But is there a larger pattern? Do people who work in certain professions tend to be better at certain Lumosity games? Read the full analysis on our blog: http://blog.lumosity.com/turning-numbers-into-knowledge/

Stare directly at the black cross in the center of this image. Within moments, the pink dots on the periphery will disappear, leaving just a grey square. How does this illusion work? Focusing on the black cross moves the dots to the periphery of your visual field -- they’re still there, but they don’t stimulate your neurons enough to perceive them. Were you able to make the pink dots disappear? Let us know in the comments and share this post with friends so they can try too.

Have you tried mindfulness meditation? Recent research has shown that this practice could change your brain for the better: 

1. More resilience. The more you meditate the quicker your amygdala (a brain region associated with emotions) can recover from stress and trauma. 

2. More grey matter. Just 2 months of meditation can create more grey matter in areas of the brain associated with self-awareness and compassion. 

3. Fewer distractions. Meditation can quiet your default mode network, which might fill your mind with worries and distractions while you’re lost in thought.

4. More focus. Meditation helps prevent your mind from wandering so you can stay focused on the task at hand.

5. Less stress. Meditation blocks stress and protects your brain from stress-related damage to attention and memory.

Start your morning off right with these science-backed tips to help maximize your brain performance throughout the day:

Enjoy a cup of green tea. Green tea boosts cognitive performance by increasing the brain’s connectivity, which is essential to working memory. Studies have also found that green tea may reduce mental and physical stress.
2. Coffee works, too. One study showed that drinking coffee can lower your risk of developing dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
3. Embrace coconut oil. We know that fat is good for the brain, but not all fats are created equal. The fat that makes up coconut oil is an excellent source of ketones, a more efficient source of brain energy than glucose. Add coconut oil to your green tea or coffee to reap the benefits!
4. Go for a walk. Try to take the stairs or get off the bus a stop early to add some aerobic exercise to your morning routine. Aerobic exercise can reverse age-related brain shrinkage, thus helping reduce the risk of memory impairment.
5. Choose optimism. A recent study found that cynicism can increase your risk of dementia, so make an effort each day to see the glass half-full.

Have you tried any of these tips? Share this post with your friends and let us know about your experience in the comments.
