Brain age

Look! A game to play while we wait!

Here are the directions. Read them here because they're in Japanese on the website.

  1. Click "START"

  2. Wait for the count down

  3. Memorize each number's position on the screen

  4. Then click the circles from the position of the smallest to largest number

  5. At the end of the game the computer will tell you the age of your brain (according to them)

  6. Leave a comment with your brain age!


I did this twice and both times my brain age was 35. I blame pregnancy. I also had trouble with mixing up the sixes and nines, which I did consistently. I don't think that is pregnancy-related.

  4. I got 34 the first time I tried it a few days ago, and then 26 when I tried it again just now. Honestly, I think the part that throws me is the countdown before hand, because I verbally say the numbers to myself when I click on them, so seeing a 3/2/1 right before all those other numbers messes me up! I wonder if I'd do better with a color-based countdown.

  7. First time I got 37...so I took it again and got a 25. I'm not really sure what that means for my 20 year old brain.

  8. Superman's mom and I about tie! First pass was 54 (my real age) progressed to 35 (second try) because I finally understood the directions AND did a better job of remembering that 0 comes before 1.

  11. The first time I got 55 then the second time I got 36. I think I'll quit while I'm looking kinda good.

  13. I was 22, and I'm afraid to try it again in case I get old. It's really about whether or not you have a photographic memory and good peripheral vision - I didn't even have time to move my eyes around the whole screen before the numbers disappeared.

  17. I got 33 the first time, which isn't too bad considering I will be 34 in March, and 20 the second time. Not bad, considering I haven't even had a whole cup of coffee yet!
