Wizard was created by neuroscientists at the University of Cambridge and is intended to improve episodic memory - the type of memory required
when you have to remember where you parked your car in a multi-storey car park - of schizophrenia patients.
Researchers at the university - who estimate schizophrenia costs the UK £13.1 billion per year - say the game could bring about "small
improvements in cognitive functions" which could help patients live more independently and therefore substantially improve their wellbeing and health.
Over 70 million people already use Lumosity worldwide. Billed as a cognitive science app, it offers users brain-training games to exercise mental muscles
You create an account and select the mental faculties you want to exercise. Lumosity then creates a customised daily routine where the games are tailored to the skills you want to test.
Like Lumosity, Fit Brains aims to*improve your mental performance with a series of brain games, selected to help your weaker areas.
The six key mental functions are: focus, memory, speed, logic, visual and language. Much like with a personal trainer, the games get harder as you
improve. Meanwhile, the app keeps track of your progress and makes reccommendations on how to challenge yourself and alter your training routine.
