The goals of this initial pilot study were to test brain plasticity-based brain training exercises and to estimate the effect size on standardized neuropsychological measures of memory in trained individuals. Pre- and post-testing of participants showed a significant improvement in memory among the group that trained with Posit Science. The active control and no-contact control groups showed no improvements in memory.
