Brain Workshop is an implementation of the Dual N-Back mental exercise. This exercise is a mental activity that has been scientifically shown to improve your working memory (short-term memory) and fluid intelligence. The game involves remembering a sequence of spoken letters and a sequence of positions of a square at the same time. Brain Workshop includes additional challenging game modes beyond Dual N-Back.

Release Notes: This release provides a new title screen. Launching in Novice Mode will no longer cause a crash. The date axis of the progress graph will no longer skip days, and data points are now indicated with a dot. The num pad should now work properly with Arithmetic N-Back modes. Difficulty of Dual Variable N-Back has been increased slightly.
Release Notes: This release adds single n-back modes for younger children and those who may find dual n-back too challenging. It also adds a new challenge mode, Dual Variable N-Back. The configuration file is no longer included in the distribution, so your old settings won't get overwritten. OpenAL is now the default sound driver on Linux. (Try installing package python-openal if you're having sound problems.) The pyglet library no longer needs to be installed separately.
