In decades past, if someone mentioned the word “fitness,” he or she was probably talking about calisthenic routines performed in a spandex body suit. Today, the term “fitness” is as likely to encompass the body as it is the mind.

A new peer-reviewed study using CogniFit offers an interesting solution for the treatment of insomnia.
We have been publishing a number of new interesting studies in the last month which prove the efficacy of the CogniFit cognitive training. This study on insomnia is quite novel as it shows how brain training could help individuals who suffer from insomnia with a non-intrusive treatment.
Dr. Evelyn Shatil, co-author of the research and Chief Scientist at CogniFit comments: “This is the first time ever that cognitive training is directly and explicitly linked to significant improvements in sleep quality. This study heralds a new era for the use of cognitive training as an enjoyable and rewarding new drug-free treatment for insomnia. Based on what we have learnt in this new study, CogniFit is an effective and affordable cognitive training solution to train people suffering from insomnia.”
CogniFit helps users to learn and remember new cognitive information while playing brain games. It is well known that new information learnt during daytime requires sleep in order to consolidate (be assimilated by the brain).
The researchers hypothesized that the newly information, learnt during the day through cognitive training, would require longer and uninterrupted sleep during the night for its consolidation and that on the nights following the training, the older adults would fall asleep sooner and sleep for a longer time period. This is exactly what happened during the study.

New study of CogniFit shows how individuals gain significant cognitive benefits when brain training for long periods of time.
We published this morning an interesting study which shows how the benefits you gain when brain training are only increasing over time rather than reaching a plateau after a couple of months.
After 6 months of consistent training, all the users show a significant improvement in at least one cognitive skills. Much like the gym, the more consistent you are with your brain training, the more results you’ll get.
