Despite the many failures to find transfer in any domain, the sheer importance of identifying tasks that can lead to improvement in other tasks recommends continued investigation of transfer effects. Their claim is that working memory and intelligence share a common capacity constraint.
This capacity constraint can be expressed either by the number of items that can be held in working memory or by the number of interrelationships among elements in a reasoning task.
This transfer results even though the trained task is entirely different from the intelligence test itself.
Furthermore, we demonstrate that the extent of gain in intelligence critically depends on the amount of training: the more training, the more improvement in in healthy adults although there are certain psychomotor stimulants and D2 dopamine-receptor agonists that have effects on isolated cognitive processes (11, 12).
Beyond the psychopharmacology, there is a growing interest in whether computer and video games may increase IQ.
But in contrast to suggestive advertisements, there is no empirical evidence that computer games enhance anything beyond task-specific performance (13, 14) and selective visuospatial attention (15).

Furthermore, there is a long history of research into cognitive training showing that, although performance on trained tasks can increase dramatically, transfer of this learning to other tasks remains poor.Here, we present evidence for transfer from training on a demanding working memory task to measures of .Yes, I attempted to make the title sound like ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ so, staying on that theme, let me share another philosophical nugget: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again whilst expecting a different result.”But what-on-earth has insanity (and un-sanity) got to do with broken shopping trolleys???When you go to your local superstore you occasionally get a trolley that has a wheel with a life of its own.
