Posit Science Corporation Company Profile

09:40 EDT 22nd September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Posit Science strives to help people flourish throughout their lives. We do this by providing effective, non-invasive tools that engage the brain’s natural plasticity to improve brain health. Leveraging the collective knowledge of a large and growing global team of more than 40 leading university-based researchers, our staff scientists and other specialists collaborate on programs intended to raise the cognitive performance – and improve the lives – of everyday people. Our initial focus: combating age-related cognitive decline.
Based in San Francisco and funded by both national research grants and private venture capital, Posit Science grew out of the pioneering work of one of our founders, renowned neuroscientist Dr. Michael Merzenich. A member of the National Academy of Sciences and Francis A. Sooy Professor of the Keck Center at UCSF, Dr. Merzenich has a track record of turning neuroscience into practical tools that help people. His discoveries continue to change how scientists and the medical profession look at the brain.
