Scientists endorsements of the dual n-back training method
Increasing intelligence is possible after all …with more training leading to greater gains …across the spectrum of abilities. …Almost 40 years ago, Jensen claimed that, when all is said and done, there is not much one can do to raise people’s IQs. Jaeggi and her colleagues have made an important contribution… by showing that intelligence is trainable to a significant and meaningful degree.
I know, there is a huge market of software concerning brain training, IQ-training, and so on. But there is no real scientific evidence that these programs actually work, that is, that they actually boost intelligence or train something else than the task itself, at least in young adults. The … fact that we reliably showed transfer effects after training, and moreover, that we showed transfer to such an important function as fluid intelligence is a very new and exciting finding in our field.
It it is possible that these exercises aid with nerve cell growth or nerve cell function in some way or alter neurological function in some way… The results are exciting and have implications for a wide variety of fields including alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Simple Brain Exercise Can Boost IQ
Can mental training improve your intelligence? No video game or mental puzzle has convincingly been shown to work. But now a group of neuropsychologists claims it has found a task that can add points to a person’s IQ – and the harder you train, they say, the more you gain.
Smarten Up. Practicing a Challenging Memory Task Spurs a Surprising Intelligence Gain
If you’re looking for an intellectual picker-upper that doesn’t come in a pill, remember this: A relatively brief memory-training program jump-starts general reasoning skills and problem-solving proficiency, according to a new study.
Training Can Increase Fluid Intelligence, Once Thought To Be Fixed At Birth
Can human beings rev up their intelligence quotients, or are they stuck with IQs set by their genes at birth? Until recently, nature seemed to be the clear winner over nurture. …But new research, led by Swiss postdoctoral fellows Susanne M. Jaeggi and Martin Buschkuehl, working at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, suggests that at least one aspect of a person’s IQ can be improved by training a certain type of memory.

Crystallized intelligence draws on existing skills, knowledge and experiences to solve problems … Fluid intelligence draws on the ability to understand relationships between various concepts, independent of any previous knowledge or skills, to solve new problems. The research shows that this part of intelligence can be improved through memory training. …General intelligence is a key to determining life outcomes such as academic success, job performance and occupational advancement … Researchers also surmise that this same type of memory training may help children with developmental problems and older adults who face memory decline.
I wanted to improve my problem solving skills and strategies. I tried HighIQPro since it had a strong scientific basis, and after 20 days of training I got an18 point fluid intelligence score increase. My problem solving ability had improved substantially: I was analysing situations better and more than anything felt like two things got much better: my logical reasoning, and my ability to consider different sides of a problem. I used the software 2 months ago, and have found that the benefits have been long-term. I strongly recommend the software for anyone prepared to put in the 20 minutes per day for 20 days.
I’m interested in knowing how my problem solving and my memory power can improve. The claim in the website was that my working memory performance and IQ would increase by 40% and as much as 20 IQ points. I got more than a 50% improvement in my memory and a 18 point fluid problem solving problem increase. After training with HighIQPro I noticed a lot of benefits – better focus and more mental efficiency, and better analytic problem solving.

What has impressed me most about HighIQPro is the improvements in practical life, like my ability to handle more memory intensive tasks and find creative solutions to problems. The rapid responses to the questions I’ve had during training have been great, and I love the Feedburner feed. It keeps me motivated over the long term.

I wanted to perform better at work, and after 20 days of HighIQPro training, I had progressed rapidly. My thinking was much clearer and I was able to solve problems and come up with creative solutions much more effectively.
The software design is slick and the functionality is great, and – best of all – the puzzles are enjoyable.
