The Mentem portal is a nice, fun, and useful tool for people who experience difficulties with memory, concentration, and sustained attention. Not only is the portal suitable for “healthy” people, but its content, training, and motivation system is a good complement to non-pharmacological treatment for patients suffering from cognitive difficulties due to head trauma, an ischaemic stroke, or any other reason. I like to recommend it to children and adults who are living with lifelong attention disorders (such as ADHD) or specific learning disabilities or who are looking for a way to practice “diminished and scarred” brain functions in both their active and retirement ages.
Games offer the opportunity to systematically and regularly “rehabilitate” (try to recover function) with individualized training. This effort may, over time, be reflected in an improved ability to maintain concentrated attention on (at least) one stimulus, more flexible thinking, improved effectiveness at recalling and providing information, and a generally “more organized” and systematic approach to life.
Last but not least, Mentem is a provoking and useful application that helps through games with a lot of information about brain functioning.
