Nognz - The Brain Fitness Store
Lazing through West Van last weekend, we stumbled upon quite the establishment – a store solely devoted to “brain fitness.” Divided into 6 areas of brain functioning, the shop is geared to hone the areas of memory, word skills, coordination, critical thinking & focus, with a “brain bar” at the back, stacked with vitamins & other nutritional supplements.
There are heaps of cool games, puzzles, software & demo stations to put your mind to the test. The staff is extremely helpful & the shop has a great, low-pressure, high-educational atmosphere.
Here, you’ll find many of the standard Sudoko, Ken Ken & crossword-type puzzles, but also tons of new gizmos to widen your eyes & furrow your brow. One of the coolest gadgets was the Neurosky MindWave, a headset that allows you to visualize your brain waves on the computer screen so that you can learn how it feels to focus or meditate.
There really is something for all ages here. Find more info on the store here.
