Lumos Labs, the company behind the Lumosity online cognitive training program, has agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges alleging that they deceived consumers with unsubstantiated claims that their games—designed to target and train specific areas of the brain—can help users reduce or delay cognitive impairment associated with age and other serious health conditions.
