The driving force behind ImagiRation puzzles is the Mental Synthesis theory, developed by the company’s co-founder Andrey Vyshedskiy. If you’re interested in reading more about this theory and Dr.Vyshedskiy’s research, please download a free electronic version of “On The Origin Of The Human Mind” (2nd edition).


  • In 4-year-old children computerized training with puzzles that gradually increased in difficulty significantly improved their fluid intelligence compared to a control group trained on puzzles that did not increase in difficulty over time. Reference: Bergman Nutley, Sissela, et al. “Gains in fluid intelligence after training non‐verbal reasoning in 4‐year‐old children: a controlled, randomized study.”– Developmental science 14.3 (2011): 591-601.
  • In children aged 7 to 9, reasoning training with puzzles similar to ImagiRation puzzles increased “performance IQ by an average of 10 points, with four of the 17 children showing gains of over 20 points.” Reference: Mackey, Allyson P., et al. “Differential effects of reasoning and speed training in children.”– Developmental Science 14.3 (2011): 582-590.
  • There is also significant evidence of long-term benefits of cognitive training. Reference: Jaeggi, Susanne M., et al. “Short-and long-term benefits of cognitive training.”– Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 108.25 (2011): 10081-10086.
