Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain?
Exercise Your Brain
Exercise is the key to good health, both for body and mind-and now there's finally a way to make mental exercise simple, fun, even competitive. Inspired by the work of prominent Japanese neuroscientist Dr. Ryuta Kawashima, Brain Training features activities designed to help stimulate your brain and give it the workout it needs like solving simple math problems, counting people going in and out of a house simultaneously, drawing pictures on the Nintendo DS touch screen, and reading classic literature out loud.
The Nintendo DS
You'll need the Nintendo DS handheld game system to play Brain Training. The Nintendo DS is available wherever video games and most home entertainment products are sold. The Nintendo DS and Brain Training are sold separately.
With the Nintendo DS handheld game system, playing Brain Training is easy! The touch screen lets users write their answers with a Stylus pen, as if they were writing on paper or using a Palm Pilot. And, with Nintendo DS's voice recognition technology, Brain Training can identify particular words you'll speak during certain activities. Want to see the DS in action? Check out our tutorial.

The first time you play Brain Training, you'll take a series of tests and get a score that determines your DS brain age.Brain Training tracks your progression with easy-to-read line charts so you always know how well you're doing. By using Brain Training just minutes a day, the better you'll get at the exercises and the lower your DS Brain Age will become.
Got a friend or family member who wants to train with you?
