UNDATED (WKOW) -- Brain training -- many people try it but scientists say any progress could be only in your mind.
There are numerous brain-training programs, from word or math games, puzzles, teasers and tests.
They claim to work like physical fitness workouts for the brain, but beware. A new study from the scientific journal, Nature says the skills don't transfer.
Patients given the brain-training programs showed improvements in specific skills, but when performing closely related tasks, subjects showed no improvement.
