Train your brain on a Mac

After receiving "thousands of calls and e-mails from Mac users," Posit Science Corp. says its bringing its Brain FItness Classic program to the Mac. Developed by a team of more than 50 neuroscientists, Posit claims on average, users memory improves to that of a person 10 years younger. The software is also designed to promote "faster thinking" and "sharper focus."

Brain Fitness Classic uses six exercises to sharpen cognitive function. By identifying and choosing between different kinds of sounds, speech, stories and instructions, the exercises are designed to hone specific areas of the brain. For example, a user might be asked to memorize details of several stories, each one longer than the last.

"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." Brain Fitness Classic supports Power PC Macs running OS X 10.3.9 - 10.4 and Intel Macs with OSX 10.4 or higher. The application is available now for $400 for a single user, $500 for two users.

    re: mind evolve

    And is Windows only.yes, $400 is a lot. I wonder how it compares to the Nintendo options, which are cheaper with a used console.

    I'm a man of quality over quantity (in most cases). When it comes to investing in your health you simply can't afford to put a price tag on it. The rewards of a well-rounded brain fitness program are very rewarding; visit for enhanced videos, fitness plan tutorials, tips and more!

    I recently started using my Ninteno DS to play Brain Age; I feel productive and I enjoy myself (keeps me away from the all guns too). It clean, crisp and beneficial check it out.

    Thanks for your community contribution, I appreciate it :-D
