Posit Science Corporation Releases the Brain Fitness Program Classic(TM) for Mac OS


7/14/2008 9:26:03 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Posit Science Corporation, the leader in brain health software, today announced the general availability of the Mac OS X version of the Brain Fitness Program Classic. Over the past year, the company has received thousands of calls and emails from Mac users who want the benefits of faster thinking, sharper focus, and better memory and would like to do the proven program on their Mac computers.

Posit Science programs are based on the company's in depth understanding of the science of brain plasticity. Fueled by a team of more than 50 neuroscientists and other experts at institutions, including UCSF, Yale, Stanford, MIT, and UC Davis, Posit Science programs provide a highly specialized approach to improving cognitive function. Published studies by Posit Science and collaborating universities have found that the Brain Fitness Program Classic improves memory on average by ten years.

Mac user Susan Greskevitch, who's 47 years old, is already seeing benefits from the program. "I've noticed changes after just 12 sessions of the Posit Science Brain Fitness Program," she says. "For instance, in the last week or so I've noticed that I'm suddenly using words that were in my vocabulary, but that I didn't use very often. You've developed a fantastic program and I've already recommended it to several people."

"Mac users spoke and we listened," said Posit Science CEO, Jeff Zimman. "We are proud to be able to help Mac customers enhance their mental sharpness and stay on top of their game."

The Posit Science Brain Fitness Program Classic for Mac OS X runs on PowerPC 10.3.9x - 10.4.x and Intel 10.4.x - 10.5.x. It is available in a single user version for $395 and a two user version for $495.

The program can be purchased on the company's website at http://www.positscience.com or by calling 1-866-599-6463. Posit Science is currently developing a Mac version of InSight(TM), its visual processing and memory program, as well.
