    I seen the championship event mentioned on the news so I thought I might ask. My mother is 92 years old almost 93 and I recently purchased a iPad. What I was hoping is if you might know and could suggest an app I could download for her to stimulate her brain and memory? I use Lumosity myself and think that would be to fast paced for her.

      Hello Tanis. Lumosity has been condemned for making claims that go beyond what they can prove. It doesn’t mean that it’s a complete waste of time, but it does mean it’s not all that efficient. The same holds true for all or at least most brain training apps. I sometimes use https://www.cambridgebrainsciences.com (free) and http://www.peak.net/ (cheap enough), but it’s probably not making me any smarter. However there are ways to help your brain age better, and there are some forms of brain training that truly work (although it’s not always easy to know which ones). General rule: sleep at consistent hours, move a lot, have a social life, do a variety of challenging stuff (not just one app). I suggest you read this article: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/you-can-increase-your-intelligence-5-ways-to-maximize-your-cognitive-potential/ And if you want to dive deeper, head to the library and find the Scientific American Mind May 2016 issue and read the “Who Really Gains from Brain Training” article. And while you’re there check out the July 2016 issue of the same magazine. Best wishes
