Brain training includes network training through repetitive practice that exercises specific brain networks and state training, which changes the brain state in a way that influences many networks. We propose two widely used methods – working memory training and meditation training – to demonstrate the similarities and differences between network and state training. These two forms of training involve different areas of the brain and different forms of generalization.
