  1. I notice that there is a threshold in physical training intensity, below which, exercise provides simply a psychological boost, and above which, there is perceptible gain in fitness.
    I wonder whether the same is true for cognitive training.
    Compare an easy cross word with a difficult Sudoku. The former requires recollection of familiar words, the latter requires concentrated problems solving (on a small scale). Does either lead to sustained benefit? Would either qualify for Ericsson’s term “deliberate practice”?
    How does one know when cognitive training begins to strengthen thinking muscles? What is the metric?
