Cambridge Brain Sciences offers a free online tool for testing mental performance. The site features multiple tests for memory (4), reasoning (4), concentration (3) and planning (3). While there are many brain training apps and sites CBS is often used as a research platform and has some impressive credentials. Biohackers use this site for testing different nootropics. A measurable cognitive gain could show the effectiveness from specific drugs. The only downside to using the CBS that I have noticed is that the site is quite slow to save results and load graphs at the end of each experiment.
Cambridge Brain Sciences bridges the gap between cutting edge neuroscience and everyday life. Using our scientifically-validated online tests backed by millions of data sets and hundreds of academic journal articles, we provide cognitive assessment solutions for a wide variety of consumer, academic and corporate uses.
For consumers – www.cambridgebrainsciences.com allows consumers to evaluate memory, reasoning, attention, planning and problem solving using some of the world’s most scientifically valid tests. Consumers can track scores over time and compare their results against our database of over 5 million data sets. To date, we’ve had well over 1 million people log on to www.cambridgebrainsciences.com, and are constantly exploring new and better ways to apply our tests to address current questions in the cognitive neurosciences.

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.
