Del Mar Community Connections offers ‘Brain Fitness’ program

Del Mar Community Connections will offer its sixth computer-based basic Brain Fitness program session starting Sept. 17. The program is designed to improve thinking, understanding and memory. It was developed by Posit Science from work performed at the University of California at San Francisco.

It includes a series of scientifically-designed exercises that are done on a computer in a class room. Computer skills are not required. The exercises are done for one hour, three times a week. The program is self-paced and adjusts to each individual’s abilities and needs.

DMCC is also offering an advanced program for those who have already taken the basic brain fitness program. This is a self-defined program that lets the participant select from 21 different exercises based on what functions of the brain the participant wants to improve. After an initial set of exercises have been completed, the participants choose their own. An important feature of the advanced program is that, after the initial phase, the participants can do the exercises on their own computer at home.  Nearly 50 participants have taken the Brain Fitness courses and almost all report improved brain performance, from the ability to remember better, to focus better and to process information faster. In general, it makes one feel more alert.

For those interested in participating, orientation meetings will be held on the following dates and times:

•Basic Brian Fitness – Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 2 p.m. at the Del Mar TV studio, 240 10th St. DM.

•Brain HQ – Monday, Sept. 9, at 1 p.m. at the DMCC Computer Lab, 225 9th St. DM.

Both programs start on Sept. 17 at the DMCC Computer Lab on 9th St. For more information and to sign up for either program, call DMCC at 858-792-7565 or email dmcc@dmcc.cc
