What’s the one question everyone answers with “yes”?

It’s “are you getting older?”

No one gets younger. It’s impossible. Everyone’s answer must be “yes”.

They looked at 18 programs, and reported that 11 had zero studies meeting their inclusion criteria.

Of the remaining seven, Posit Science’s BrainHQ adult brain fitness program was the clear leader in efficacy, with eight times as many “high quality” studies as any other program.
