British Neuroscience Association and MENSA member Martin Walker loves the brain for its potential. As the founder of mind evolve, he has created MindSparke—a company dedicated to creating innovative brain training programs designed to hone the user's working memory. MindSparke's central program, the Brain Fitness Pro series for ages 11–adult, is based on dual-n-back training—a method designed to improve working memory and fluid intelligence simultaneously using visual and aural memory exercises.
The web-based program, which has been likened to "…boot camp for the brain…", adapts in real-time; using each participant's unique personality profile to slowly increase the difficulty of the exercises. Using this strict regimen, Brain Fitness Pro may improve cognitive stamina, focus, and general memory, as well as attention and memory problems associated with ADD, ADHD, and OCD.
