A new mobile app, called 'Moo-Q', can now decode what time of the day your brain is either nervous or happy, so that you can better perform assigned tasks at work or home. The app asks people how positive or negative they are feeling at a certain time of the day. It then records how well they perform in mental tests that measure processing speed and memory during the day.

Dr. Sophie von Stumm from University of London said, "The app will alert you to changes in your brain over time, in memory or processing speed, and it can even help you to exercise your brain. Normally, brain test scores are highest early in the day. With this app, you might be well advised to undertake important tasks that require a bit more brainpower first thing in the morning."

After undergoing the assessment tests, users can prepare personalized Moo-Q charts. These charts display a color-coded graph showing mood and brainpower across hours, days and weeks. Dr. von Stumm said, "It is an old question in psychology if our brains work better when we are in high spirits, or if being a little miserable helps push our brains to maximum performance."
