PEAK - the game - further research

Today i was informed about some interesting stuff:

We are very excited to announce our partnership with the Northampton Saints Rugby team. The Saints, who finished on top of the English Rugby Premiership table last year and are past winners of the European Rugby Championship, will be incorporating Peak into their training regime to determine the effect of brain training on the performance of elite athletes.

The research project - which follows a summer-long trial - hopes to shed light on the ongoing debate if cognitive skills trained on games are “transferable” to real-world activities.

We look forward to sharing the results with you!

Why is this interesting? Because we can see the effects of neuroplasticity applied to perfectly health and very fit subjects. We can read the results and apply it, as we can correlate the direct relation between physical body and mental capacity improvements. I will keep you posted when i find more about this.
