New Applications for Cognitive Training
Date:11/21/2008

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- New inventions in computerized brain training may help people with a variety of cognitive disabilities lead fuller lives, said Jeff Zimman, Chairman of Posit Science(R) Corporation. Zimman presented today at the annual Technology Innovators Conference in Washington, DC, a meeting organized by The National Center for Technology Innovation to promote innovation to assist people with disabilities.

Zimman said cognitive training programs can assist millions of people in performing at higher levels of cognitive function and have better quality of life. Posit Science technology incorporated in its Brain Fitness Program(TM) and Insight(TM) products has been shown to improve cognitive function in healthy adults in a number of published studies. Now, research has been expanded to a wide range of neurological conditions, including traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia, stroke, geriatric depression, mild cognitive impairment, dementia, and chemobrain.

"There are now more than 30 published papers on the use of our technologies in randomized controlled trials," Zimman said. "Those peer-reviewed articles show that our technologies enable most people to think faster, focus better and remember more. We believe there is great promise in using this non-invasive technology to address many cognitive impairments."

Posit Science has sold more than 100,000 units of the Brain Fitness Program, which improves auditory processing and memory, in the past two years and recently introduced a new version of its visual processing and memory program, InSight 1.1. Two current PBS documentaries, "The Brain Fitness Program" and "Brain Fitness 2" feature these two training programs and the company's science and scientists.
