100 buttons

Happy new year!

Today we suggest you an app to train self-control (inhibitoty control), working memory and processing speed.

100 buttons is an app in which different buttons of different colors appear on the screen. The instructions changes screen to screen. In some of then we have to move some button, others not to tapp some colors (e.g. not blue-not green-not yellow) thus deciding which one should be tapped, others totapp the buttons attending the color in the instruction and not the written word (stroop-like instruction), tapping the one writting in opposite sense ect. All of the instructions must be completed as fast as possible.

To play to this app fluent reading and colors distintion is required.

BubbleTap – Attention! Wasps!

Hello everyone! today we show you a fun app to train specially processing speed and inhibitory control. 

In just a minute or so you have to to tapp all the bubbles that you can (they move quite fast) avoiding to tap wasps. You should be fast to tap as much as you can and reach your best mark!

Escape Logan Estate

Hello followers! today we show you a really challenging app! Escape Logan Estate is a very entertaining app in which resolve several logic games!

You have to resolve though different chapters like a “video game story” jigsaws to continue in the game!

It has 3 chapters, it is recommended from 9 years and up (but we suggested from 12).

You may see one example on this video:

We hope you like it! Have a nice week!




Good morning to all of you! This week we show you an application to train some aspects of executive functions and attention.

The application is called Crossroad and consists on controlling the traffic of vehicles, motorcycles, trucks and bicycles that circulate in a four lane fork. To do this, you must use many processes such a anticipation, planning, alternating attention, concentration and multitasking.

We recommend it from 10 years and up.

It is available in Itunes at the following link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/crossroad-control-traffic-at-rush-hour-avoid-car-crashes/id908958151?mt=8

See you next week!


Where’s My Water?

This week we show you and app to train executive functions (planning) in a funny way!

Yo have to help Swampy by guiding water to his broken shower. For this you have to take mug out and thus the water will flow thought the maze until the Sampy shower. Cutting through dirt and guide fresh water, dirty water, toxic water, steam, and ooze through increasingly challenging scenarios. It has different levels of dificulty.

It is an app developed by Disney, with an atractive desing.




Have a nice week!


Brain on Physics

This week we suggest you a very entertained app to train Planing and problem-solving.

brain on physics1

In brain on physics you have to draw lines to get the truck in the grey zone. You need to plan and consider obstacles, high differences between the truck and the grey zone, gather coins in the middle…

Here you have and example:


It has different levels of difficulty. We recommend it from 16 years old and up.




We hope you like it!

Mind Twist

This week we show you and app developed to train attention, memory, visual perception and cognitive flexibility. 


The games that we find more interesting are the one which requieres mental flexibility, use of alternative strategies to solve a situation where you are required to figure out how to solve it. For instance, you see different animals on the screen and the instruction is “feed all the animales” you have to find a solution, in this case, you have solve it by feeding animales with other ones lower in the food chaine, a reasoning that you have to find out by your own. By training mental flexibility we improve covergent thinking (logic) as well as divergent thinking (alternatives solutions), a process strongly related with creativity.

You may see some examples in this video:

It is an entrertaining app that also provide you a score an feedback of your performance. It has different levels of difficulties.




Have a nice week!

NOT NOT -A brain buster

Are you goog in self-control? are you able to inhibit an “automatic” response? 

Through “NOT NOT-A brain buster” application you may train inhibitory process as well as processing speed. Instrucction are simple: move to the left, up, down… and randomly change to “non” instrucctions like “not left” (which would mean do the opposite: move to the right). There are other instructions using colors and other types of stimulus (go no go tasks). Time is important because is limited on  every trial, that’s the reason why we also train processing speed.

For brain process negative instructions is complicated to process, we used to process the positive ones, for instance, if we tell you: “not think in a pink elephant”, you have think in a pink elephant… the ability to control this kind of automatism is called “inhibition“, a process include in the term of “executive functions”.

This app has different levels of difficulty and may combine different instrucctions (e.g. “not down and not red”)




We hope you like it!

Number link

Are you good on planning and logical thinking? We dare you to try “Number Link“!

Though this app we can train executive functions (planning, reflesive thinking…) and logic thinking as well.

The instruction is simple: connect numbers without leaving empy spaces. There are several levels of diffulty.




















Have  a nice week!



Logic Safari

Today we suggest you a very  entertaining app that will test your logical thinking!

logic safari2

Logic safari  will make you solve challenges following rules, for instance, the problem of the gacelle, lettuce and the lion: a boatman has to tranfer the gacelle, lettuce and the lion one by one to the other side of the shore. Gacelle should not eat lettuce, lion shoud not eat the gacelle.   On “safari” part we has to solve this kind of challenges, on “elixir” we need to get bottles to unlock challenges, the way to do it is by solving locic exercices  (sequences such as: 2, 4, 6, 8, …, 12, 14, to infer numerical values through equalities among symbols, etc.).

With this application, we foster reasoning and executive functions such as planning,  sequencing or cognitive flexibility among others.

It is very entertaining and free! we recommend it for  adults or children up to 12 years old. 

Here you can see a demostration:
