A lot of makers of mind games promote that such activities can improve mental functioning. But the research suggests that such benefits tend to be more likely for those who start with impaired or low functioning. This is good news in that those who are most in need of the benefits are most likely to benefit, but for the average person there seems to be less benefit. Also, it appears as if these games don’t seem to offer any more benefit than other cognitive pursuits, such as learning a new language or playing a musical instrument or even regular aerobic exercise.
