The Quantified Mind : Guided Experiments to Test Mental Performance
The Quantified Mind site is presently running five free experiments to see what makes you smarter. The tests on the site are designed to measure your working memory, reaction times, motor and executive functions. The experiments being tested are:
time of day effects
The tests range in duration from 4-10 minutes each and require between 23 to 50 sessions. Learning which of these things effects your performance could optimize workday performance. You can even create your own tests through their site. This seems like it would be a good tool for testing supplements and nootropics for performance enhancing claims. After you complete an experiment you can see go to their “Data Minding” area to view and download your results.
The coffee experiment would look like this:
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
