While Stevens Point, Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids are small communities, there seems to be no lack of brain power based on a study using a database of people who use Lumosity Internet games.
A list of the 100 smartest cities in America using Lumosity scores ranks Stevens Point 40th and Marshfield/Wisconsin Rapids 83rd.
The study and its rankings aren’t as off-beat or silly as one might think, said Kym Buchanan, associate professor of education at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
The Lumosity games and other games that foster brain-training aren’t simple or easy forms of entertainment.
