This week, a retired fighter pilot from the U.S. Air Force shares his story about what it takes to be a great pilot and what cognitive skills he uses to fly. Then, he performs brain training exercises with a special challenge at the end for viewers. Film yourself doing the exercise he to see if you can beat his time, and then send the video to Learning Rx via their Facebook page.
LearningRx Chattanooga's website states the organization provides one-on-one brain training that focuses on a set of seven cognitive skills — attention, working memory, logic and reasoning, auditory processing, visual processing, processing speed and long-term memory — that allow us to learn easier, think faster and perform better.
The free activity book below also includes six games to stimulate your brain and improve the way information is processed and remembered. Most activities require two people.
