NeuroChess is a game based on the 'dual n-back' exercise. A study showed that such exercises can improve fluid intelligence ('the ability to reason and to solve new problems independently of previously acquired knowledge') by training with a 'demanding working memory task'. Whereas the stimuli in the study were auditory and visual, the stimuli for NeuroChess are both visual (pieces and squares) and chess-focused.
Making NeuroChess chess-focused is critical: other studies have questioned whether the benefits of standard n-back training transfer to other domains or such training is useful for general cognitive enhancement. Since chess players want to be able calculate deeper with more accuracy, it, therefore, makes sense for them to do n-back training with chess stimuli.
- Ability to calculate from 1 (relatively easy) to 9 (extremely difficult!) moves deep
- Choice of square color and piece sets
- Score tracking over time - to see your chess focus improving
