Brain game "Mahjong": What is it?

Mahjong is a brain training game .To advance in the game, we will have to match the same tiles to get rid of them, but we can only access those tiles with free sides. However, as the level of complexity of this mind training game increases, the cognitive demands will increase.

The difficulty of this brain game will automatically adjust depending on the user's training. Mahjong is a scientific resource designed to continuously measure cognitive performance and automatically adjusts difficulty, optimizing brain training. The brain game Mahjong was designed for children, adults, and seniors who want to train and stimulate essential cognitive skills.

How can the brain game "Mahjong" improve your cognitive skills?

It has been proven that practicing the clinical brain training exercises from CogniFit make it possible to activate and strengthen cognitive skills with neuroplasticty.

When training the brain with brain games like Mahjong, you stimulate a specific neural activation pattern. Consistently repeating and training this pattern can help create new synapses and neural circuits able to reorganize and recover weak or damaged cognitive functions.

The brain game Mahjong was designed to stimulate the adaptive potential of the nervous system and help the brain recover after structural alterations, disorders, or damage where cognitive skills are affected. This game is indicated for anyone looking to challenge and improve cognitive performance.

Which cognitive skills does "Mahjong" train?

The cognitive skills trained in this brain game are:

  • Visual Scanning: To advance in the mind game Mahjong, we must identify the pairs of each figure and quickly select them from all the cards that appear on the screen. By performing this exercise we are activating and stimulating our visual scanning skills. Improving this cognitive ability is fundamental to our daily lives because it allows us to identify more efficiently the relevant stimuli in our environment to find what we want quickly and effectively. This cognitive ability plays a very important role in the sports world, in road driving or in learning, as they are activities that require a large visual component.
  • Visual Perception: To advance in Mahjong we must correctly identify the figure that appears represented in each tile and distinguish if the pair is identical or contains some differences. By performing this mental exercise we are activating and strengthening the neuronal connections involved in our visual perception capacity. Improving this cognitive ability is fundamental for our daily lives, as it will allow us not to make mistakes when interpreting the visual information that we perceive from the environment through our eyes: Size, shape, position, color, dimensions, movement, use, name, etc. and will help us to be more efficient in practically all activities that require a good visual perception.
  • Planning: To level up in Mahjong we must mentally anticipate the order in which we will complete each pair. As the difficulty of this mental training increases, we will find overlapping tiles that cannot be unlocked. By practicing this brain game we are activating and strengthening our planning capacity. Improving this cognitive ability is essential for our daily lives, as it allows us to "think about the future" and mentally sequence the tasks we must perform to achieve a specific goal. For example, when we have to organize our tasks at work, or we have to decide how we are going to solve schoolwork. Low levels of planning ability can lead us to make wrong decisions, not being able to anticipate the consequences of our actions, being easily distracted and forgetting things, thinking and reacting incorrectly, etc.
  • Spatial Perception: To level up in Mahjong we must know the exact position of each tile and identify if it is accessible or not. By performing this mental exercise we are activating and strengthening our capacity for spatial perception. Improving this cognitive ability is fundamental for our daily lives, as it allows us to think in two and three dimensions, it helps us to visualize objects from different angles and to recognize them independently. Low levels of spatial perception may make it difficult for us to deal with our environment.
  • Non-verbal Memory: As Mahjong progresses we will have to mentally encode and store the tiles that appear on the screen. Identify their position and whether they are accessible to retrieve. By performing this mental exercise we are activating and strengthening our non-verbal memory capacity. Improving this cognitive ability allows us retain and retrieve information without verbal content, such as faces, figures and images, melodies, sounds, noises, smells, etc.
  • Width of Field of View: In order to level up in Mahjong we will have to visualize all the tiles that appear along the length and width of the board surface. The number of figures we perceive when looking at a point on the board depends directly on our field of vision. The more tiles we identify at a glance, the easier it is for us to detect the pairs. A good visual field allows us to detect the presence of stimuli more efficiently and reduce, for example, risk situations when driving.
  • Focused Attention:To advance level in Mahjong we will have to focus our attention on the different stimuli that appear on the screen and quickly identify the cards that we must match. By practicing this brain exercise we are activating and stimulating our focused attention. Improving this cognitive capacity will make it easier for us to focus our attention on the activity we are doing, such as studying, working, driving efficiently, and even cooking.

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

The brain is designed to reserve resources, which causes it to eliminate the connections that it doesn't use often. This means that if you don't regularly use a certain cognitive skill, the brain will stop sending it the resources that it needs, and it will become weaker and weaker. This makes us less efficient when using the said function, causing us to be less efficient in daily activities.
