 Software to Improve Brain Function

Curtin University researchers have shown that a US-designed software program can add up to 10 years of speed, accuracy and recall to an individual's brain age.

The program is designed by US neurosurgeon Mike Merzenich and needs to be used at least 40 minutes a day, five days a week for eight weeks in order to have the desired effect.

Alzheimer's Australia said the results of a two-year study designed to find the optimum brain-fitness plan to improve memory function and recall were promising.

"This is core business for us ... one of our clear strategic objectives is to assist the community to reduce the risk of developing dementia," Alzheimer's Australia strategic directions general manager David Gribble said. "It is one of the seven aspects of lifestyle that all of the research shows will reduce risk is staying mentally active."
