MELON - BRAIN TRAINING
Melon guides you on a journey to better focus. Play a customized brain training routine once per day. Based on the principles of neuroscience, our games train the core cognitive abilities of focus and working memory. Each routine takes about six minutes and consists of three fun brain games and a reflective exercise. Focus is a valuable skill, like meditation and mindfulness. With improved focus, you can become more productive and better able to control your thoughts and stress levels. Use the app to keep track of your progress, earn badges, play more advanced games, and learn about your own brain and activity patterns.
NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Melon only uses GPS during headband sessions initiated by the user.

Melon’s cognitive training games are derived from neuroscience tasks that were designed to test certain basic cognitive skills or executive functions. While some effects of cognitive training are still actively debated, it is clear that training of executive functions has short-term positive effects. Melon's current games are designed to train the core cognitive skills of working memory and attention.
