Exercising Executive Function

Posted Jan 15 2009 7:42pm

Lumos' newest executive function exercise

Think you’re good at multitasking? Many people believe they get more done by doing several things at once, but usually they’re wrong. Every time you switch to a different activity, you must give up a moment to shift your attention to the new task at hand. Overall, doing more than one thing slows you down.

While it’s a good idea to avoid multitasking in your day-to-day activities, some multitasking is simply unavoidable. So, we’ve designed Brain Shift to help you become better at efficiently switching between different activities. You should still avoid multitasking when possible, but we hope this exercise will make you better at it for those times when you must.

You can find Brain Shift here: http://games.lumosity.com/brain_shift.html

Let us know what you think!
