Thinking Marathon

Everyone approaches the demands of daily life in their own way, and every person’s behavior is variable. How does that influence the ability to learn? How variable is cognitive performance from one day to the next – and why? Does stress make the brain fitter? And do older adults vary more in their cognitive performance than younger people?

A research team lead by developmental psychologist Ulman Lindenberger at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development has examined these questions in one of the largest studies ever conducted in this field. A total of 200 younger and older participants trained their cognitive abilities by completing various tasks over a 100-day period – a “100-Day Thinking Marathon”
