AgeLab Director Brings Wisdom to Aging Brains
Date:4/16/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Posit Science Corporation, the leading provider of scientifically proven brain fitness programs, announced today that Joseph Coughlin, Ph.D., the founder and Director of MIT's AgeLab, has joined its advisory board. Dr. Coughlin was recently named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the 12 people who will most affect your retirement. He will assist Posit Science in its efforts to help people improve performance in driving, health and mobility.

A new generation of research-driven technology promises to provide older adults with the capacity to take control of how they will live in later life, not just how long they will live."

"Joe Coughlin is a trail blazer in what we can do to improve aging by applying lab breakthroughs into everyday life," said Jeff Zimman, CEO of Posit Science. "That commitment matches our core mission which is to get the science out of the labs and into the hands of people who can get more of what they want out of life. We will benefit greatly from his advice and experience."

Posit Science develops clinically proven software programs that improve the speed and accuracy of mental processing, memory and other cognitive functions. The company's programs have been shown to be effective in numerous studies and in more than 30 published journal articles.
