New Brain App Has “Ritalin”-Like Effects


There is a new app on the scene that appears to truly help its users focus. The game was designed by none other than researchers at the world-renowned University of Cambridge. Specifically, the university’s Behavioral and Clinical Neuroscience Institute launched an app by the name of “Decoder”, that was developed to improve concentration, attention, and overall focus.

In a world where there truly does seem to be a “pill” for everything – whether the issue is erectile dysfunction or lack of sleep – the app has actually improved concentration as much as the extremely popular drug “Ritalin”. For those that are unaware, Ritalin is a among the top 50 prescribed medicines in the United States, often given to individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as ADHD.

About The Study

The scientific journal Frontiers In Behavioural Science published a study that concluded that if one used the app for eight hours over the course of about thirty days, there were similar effects observed that if one had been prescribed Ritalin.
