Transforming how we think about mental fitness
At the University of California, Riverside (UCR) Brain Game Center, we research, test, and disseminate evidence-based, scientifically optimized brain fitness games that assist people in real-life activities connected to memory, vision, hearing, learning, and more.
Under the leadership of Professor Aaron Seitz, our interdisciplinary team includes psychologists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, medical experts, programmers, artists, and more.
We provide exciting hands-on learning experiences for undergraduate and graduate students from across the university to participate in meaningful research while encouraging entrepreneurial pursuits.
We have a track record of making our tested procedures publicly available so that our innovations help our community and the world.
