Optiminds Helps Sharpen Your Cognitive Skills

Cognitive skills are the underlying brain skills that make it possible for us to think, remember and learn. They allow us to process the huge influx of information we receive each and every day at work, at school and in life.

Here is just a sample of some basic cognitive skills:

Deductive Reasoning: Inference in which the conclusion about particulars follows necessarily from general or universal premises; the ability to deduce.

Divided Attention: To attend to and handle two or more tasks at one time, such as taking notes while listening and carrying totals while adding the next column without making errors.

Inductive Reasoning: To make generalized conclusions from particular instances.

Logic and Reasoning: to reason, plan, and think.

Long-Term Memory: To store information and fluently retrieve it later in the process of thinking.

Math Computations: To do math calculations such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.

Problem Solving: To organize information, define the goal of inquiry, plan a series of sequential steps, and apply the steps accurately to satisfy the goal of inquiry.

Working Memory: To retain information while processing or using it.
