Merzenich Elected to Institute of Medicine
Date:10/13/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Merzenich, PhD., co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Posit Science, has been elected to the Institute of Medicine according to an announcement by the Institute today. Dr. Merzenich is one of 65 newly elected members.

Members are elected through a highly selective process that recognizes people who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health. Election is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of medicine and health. There are currently just 1,736 members.

The Institute of Medicine is one of the membership branches of the National Academies, which also includes the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Dr. Merzenich has previously been honored by election to the National Academy of Sciences, making him one of a very select group elected to more than one academy. All are private, non-profit institutions that provide science, technology, and health policy advice under a congressional charter. New members are elected by current members of each institution.

Most members of the Institute of Medicine are medical doctors. Dr. Merzenich is not. His research work over the past three decades, at UCSF and at companies he has founded, has focused on how the science of brain plasticity can improve brain health. Dr. Merzenich co-founded Posit Science in October 2003, with the mission of getting discoveries in the lab quickly turned into products that can improve the lives of people.

Posit Science computer-based training programs are designed to enhance cognitive abilities of people as they grow older. The technology used by Posit Science has been shown to be effective in numerous randomized controlled trials and has been reported on in more than 30 published papers.

More than 100,000 copies of the programs have been sold for home use, and thousands of additional people use the program
