Thanks for the heads up to that good article. I saw it in MindHacks too.

Now, I would recommend anyone considering such programs to always ask the questions:
1) What does the specific program look like: how many hours a week, how many weeks, and to accomplish what outcomes?
2) What research has been published, or has been submitted to publication, that supports that precise program?
3) How do any benefits transfer to real life and to our cognitive abilities/ skills?
