N-back and multitasking - brain effects
Some research shows or suggests that multitasking causes brain damage and impairs (working) memory. (For example: https://www.inc.com/larry-kim/why-multi-tasking-is-killing-your-brain.html)

Concerning this, I was wondering how this relates to brain training games and especially the well-known N-back, which is said to improve fluid intelligence/working memory. Since N-back is more or less a multitasking game (because you have to remind both the sounds and the positions), I was wondering whether this game can also cause brain damage – instead of being beneficial?
