I use BrainTrain’s Cognitive Training System in a computer lab or classroom. Will the noise from other computers and people in the room interfere with the effectiveness of the training?

It is not necessary to work in a totally quiet environment. All school classrooms and workplaces are distracting visually and auditorally, so it is important to learn to remain focused in these kinds of situations. You can use the external noise to help reinforce training the subjects not to be “fooled” by distractions but to concentrate regardless of what is going on around them. External rewards (toy money, small prizes, etc.) may also be used to reward particularly focused work. In this way, the environment can actually be put to work to enhance the effectiveness of the training.
