At Posit Science, Dr. Delahunt helps develop core computer-based training exercises for BrainHQ and other Posit Science applications. His research focuses on the effects of aging on visual perception, investigating cognitive training options for driving safety in drivers both young and old, and reversing declines in visual performance using computer-based training in normal aging and clinical populations. He earned his PhD in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

BrainHQ provides many real-world benefits

An article on Science Daily talked about a science publication by researchers from Florida State University who examined how technology is being used by senior citizens. The researchers refer to computer-based brain fitness programs and make the following statement: “There is limited but encouraging evidence that these so-called brain fitness software packages make a difference…

Evaluating Brain Fitness Programs – Which Should I Choose?

The brain fitness market has expanded rapidly in recent years, and there is now a large selection of computer and on-line brain training exercises to choose from. At one end of the spectrum are games that are purely for entertainment purposes. At the other end are exercises that have been scientifically validated in clinical trials.…

More Good News: Brain Training Cuts Crash Risk in Half

The evidence in favor of brain training just keeps rolling in: even a small amount of brain training in brain fitness software like InSight or DriveSharp can cut the crash risk of older driver’s in half. Don’t believe me? Check at this recent study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board…
