Here are some websites to get you started:

- Lumosity is a website that features several different brain training games. Players are encouraged to create a profile that allows them to track their progress and play certain games that target mental flexibility, memory, problem solving, speed and attention. The idea is that performing these tasks regularly will help "train" your brain to function more effectively.

- Cambridge Brain Sciences Inc provides 14 different games that test one of the following: memory, reasoning, concentration and planning.

-Cognitive Fun provides numerous games under the following 5 headings:
attention , perceptual, executive, item span, memory and experimental.

-The Cognitive Aging Laboratory provides 11 links to online cognitive games that they have found useful.
