Give your brain a daily workout with Cognitive Boost! Like your muscles, your brain needs regular exercises to stay sharp. Download this app now and unlock the potential to improve your cognitive abilities.

🧠 Train Your Brain:
Regular use of Cognitive Boost can help your brain form new neural connections. Whether you’re a toddler or a senior, these short and engaging games are designed for all ages. Play while waiting for a meeting, or use it as a “calmer downer” when someone is running late.

🎮 Intuitive and Inclusive:
No language skills required! The app is highly intuitive, using emojis to visually indicate correct or wrong answers. The game features re-imagined emojis created by students and faculty from a historic European design university.

🌟 Unique Memory Challenge:
Unlike typical “memory match” games, Cognitive Boost offers a unique experience with hundreds of randomly displayed emojis. Start by memorizing two to twenty images and pick each original image from a lineup. Challenge yourself to increase the difficulty and see how many images you can remember without training psychologists say the average is seven!

🔄 Dynamic 3D Rotation:
Take your memory skills to the next level by mastering the rotation speed of multiple-choice answers. Objects rotate in three dimensions, each in different directions, requiring observation, timing, and memory. Start slow and work your way up to higher levels as you gain experience.

🎗️ Support Parkinson’s Research:
Cognitive Boost is not just a brain training app; it’s a fundraiser for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) research. The app is free with no in-app purchases. Optionally, you can make a voluntary contribution of any amount directly to the PD research center via the in-app button. Join us in the search for a cure!
