Amherst is the smartest city in Massachusetts and the seventh smartest city in the nation according to a new study done by the website Luminosity.
Luminosity uses special games they claim will boost memory. They used results from more than 3 million people across the country. When the results were tabulated, eight cities in Massachusetts made the top 50.
A majority of the cities that made the list are near major universities.
The top score went to Stanford, CA. Other cities in Massachusetts that made the list are Somerville, Lexington and Brighton.
This was the second year Luminosity conducted the study.
