Brain Fitness: Peak Performance - Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD demonstrates how experts in various fields (a flutist, a baseball player, and a simultaneous translator) improve their neurological abilities through sustained, continuous, intense practice of their respective skill set and how such consequential neurological findings in experts compare to the average individual.
The Brain Fitness Program - The Brain Fitness Program is based on the brain's ability to change and adapt, even rewire itself. In the past two years, a team of scientists has developed computer-based stimulus sets that drive beneficial chemical, physical and functional changes in the brain. Dr. Michael Merzenich of the University of California and his colleagues share their scientifically based set of brain exercises in this life-altering program. Peter Coyote narrates. This DVD features closed captioning.
Brain Fitness Frontiers - This program illustrates how ordinary people are using their brain plasticity to create lasting and astonishing changes. Neuroscience research is proving that neuroplasticity holds the key to previously unimaginable and amazing transformations. The third program of the Brain Fitness trilogy takes viewers into the labs of the scientists and the lives of those who have been assisted and changed through cognitive training. This DVD features closed captioning.
Brain Fitness 2: Sight and Sound - This program, specifically designed to help people get the most from their vision and hearing as they age, considers how these senses change throughout life and what people can do to keep them healthy and fully functional. This DVD features closed captioning.
