4. Soak your Head http://www.soakyourhead.com/
“This site has an application that may, with daily training, improve a person’s intelligence. This application was designed according to the protocol (Dual N-Back Task) found in a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. While the findings are only preliminary, the results are startling: It may be possible to increase almost anyone’s IQ (or, more accurately, gF). Because this is such an exciting finding, we have decided to make this application and make it freely available on the web”
5. Brain Gameshttp://brainpages.org/brain-games/
“Brain games are cognitive calisthenics, brain body-building, genius gymnastics…essentially fun workouts for your brain.The brain might not be a muscle but it does need mental fitness, in order to strengthen neurons and their neural connections.
The brain-challenging exercises that ‘challenge’ the mind are those that cause it to step out of autopilot and begin to think originallyagain. These ‘challenges’ can be out-of-the-box-thinking games, brain teasers, non-traditional math, logic problems, and the like”.
