Posit Science Auditory Processing

The Brain Fitness Program

The Brain Fit­ness Pro­gram for audi­to­ry pro­cess­ing includes six engag­ing, easy-to-use lis­ten­ing exer­cis­es done on a com­put­er. The pro­gram focus­es on audi­to­ry pro­cess­ing because lis­ten­ing is such an impor­tant part of our dai­ly lives, and with­out prac­tice, these skills often decrease over time.

The goals of the Posit Sci­ence pro­gram are to:

  • - Speed up brain func­tion
    In every exer­cise, the sounds and speech begin at a slow­er pace and grad­u­al­ly speed up, with the aim of train­ing your brain to process infor­ma­tion at high speeds.
  • - Improve accu­ra­cy
    The sci­en­tists who devel­oped the pro­gram have applied patent­ed tech­nol­o­gy to process the sounds and speech with the goal of help­ing the brain refine its accu­ra­cy.

- Strength­en mem­o­ry record­ing
Sev­er­al pro­gram ele­ments are specif­i­cal­ly designed to exer­cise the brain machin­ery that records mem­o­ries.

Is this pro­gram right for you?

- You do not need any pri­or com­put­er expe­ri­ence to do the exer­cis­es — you just need to be able to click on a mouse.

- The pro­gram will chal­lenge you by cal­i­brat­ing to your skill lev­el to keep you work­ing at your pace.

- You will receive exten­sive feed­back about your progress and per­for­mance. As you improve at the exer­cis­es, you should start to notice your over­all sharp­ness increas­ing.

Once you fin­ish the first 40, there are anoth­er 40 ses­sions you can com­plete.

Dr. Michael Merzenich and his team devel­oped the pro­gram and have led the research behind it.
