    It is supposed to be the " authentic " brain fitness program , his tests are really intriguing - one is located at the bottom right hand corner of the above website.

    Most definitely. I have purchased both products for my parents and cant think of enough superlatives to describe how great an experience it has been for them and me. I highly recommend these programs for anyone over 40.

    In order to get some information I went to the site and noticed they made a couple announcements today...partnerships with Alzheimer's Australia and Allstate. I cant imagine those two companies don't do there due diligence on Posit Science.

    I did the brain speed test. I did it three times and got 39 milliseconds, then 32 then 30.

    The whole test is supposed to take around 30 minutes. After this it gives you the age of your performance , how good your listening skills are. I like the test because it seems to tap into your brain's inherent abilities.
