Cogmed Australia improves working memory and attention
Cogmed is a proven training program for improving two of life’s most important skills – working memory and attention. Both children and adults can benefit.

Working memory is the ability to keep information in your mind for a short time, focus on a task and remember what to do next. Children, adolescents and adults are required to use their working memory all the time – whether it be to remember someone’s name, perform mental maths calculations or write a story or essay.
Cogmed is like a personal trainer for working memory and attention. The fun and intensive computer-based cognitive exercises are designed by neuroscientists to challenge your brain, with the exercises getting harder in real time as your working memory and attention improve.
More than eighty percent of Cogmed users experience significant improvements in working memory capacity. Participants report improvements in staying focused, ignoring distractions, remembering instructions, in complex reasoning and problem solving, as well as academic achievement.
