Training specific skills make you better at just that, using those specific skills in specific situations that are not readily generalizable. Brain fitness leads to faster thinking, enhanced memory, sharper listening abilities, better vision and quicker reactions. Improved visual contrast sensitivity.
Researchers observe and identify improved skills, but will question whether such improvements can truly be generalized in an everyday context. However, some argue that benefits could be hard to correctly pinpoint without robust methodology, as people with better visuospatial skills, for example, have a higher probability of naturally playing these games in everyday life, because they are usually good at it.
