Brain Fitness Program for MacIntosh

The "Brain Fitness Program Classic" is a software package for personal computers developed in consultation with neuroscientists. It uses techniques designed to improve the user's cognitive functions in areas such as retention and the production of beneficial neurochemicals. The software package includes various exercises adapted to different cognitive functions and user skill levels. Its creators claim that results have been clinically tested.

Such "brain fitness" style software has become increasingly popular in recent years as popular awareness of neuroscience and the possibility of increasing one's own brain function (neuroplasticity) has increased. As a result, similar software has been developed for other user platforms, including video game systems.
