We work with an international team of scientists on answering this question in a reliable and precise way. See Cognitive Improvements and stats for further details. Generally there are indications, but current state of the research suffers from a lack of well designed studies with both a passive and an active control group. A software platform as ours is well suited to shedding a light on the answer to this question, since the training is better repeatable with different groups and classes than traditional classroom teaching where the teacher her- or himself is an additional variable.
