Lumos Labs

Lumosity’s web and mobile games are designed to challenge core cognitive abilities. Founded in 2005 and launched in 2007, Lumosity has over 50 million members, and is one of the fastest growing online consumer subscription sites.

Lumosity works closely with academics, and its technology fuels studies being conducted by researchers at Harvard, Stanford, UCSF, and other top institutions. As part of the Human Cognition Project, Lumosity has helped put together the world’s largest database of human cognitive performance. This data, along with collaborations with researchers worldwide, puts Lumosity at the center of study on real-world application of cognitive training.

Lumosity also provides a program for schools K-12 called the Lumosity Education Access Program (LEAP), which seeks to study the effects of cognitive training on students performance.
