CHAMPAIGN -- Champaign-Urbana is ranked the 13th Smartest City in the U.S. That's according to Lumosity. It's a company which creates brain-exercises and measures just how smart people are. Its data shows Ithaca, New York is the smartest. 

That's a college town just like C-U. In fact, most of the top cities are college towns, like Iowa City, IA,  Ann Arbor, MI, and Bloomington, IN. People say the universities are what puts them on the list. 

The rankings were based on a study performed by Lumosity. More than 3-million adults in the U.S. played its brain games. It measures memory, processing speed, attention, flexibility and problem-solving. The results made the top 100 Smartest Cities list.

Champaign-Urbana was ranked 13th, above Boston-Cambridge-Newton, home of MIT and Harvard.
