Brain Age (released in Europe as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain?) is a Nintendo DS title that helps you develop your mental abilities on a daily basis through a set of minigames, including: reading parts of classic books, calculation games, and the Stroop test. It's also the first Nintendo DS game that requires you to turn the DS on its side (instead of looking at the screens top/bottom, you look at them left/right).

Its Creator is Dr. Ryuta Kawashima of the New Industry Creation Hatchery Center, at Tohoku University.

The main feature of this game is the ability to calculate your "Brain Age" with some tests, and the game also tracks this progress over time. The game also includes some Sudoku puzzles.
