Everyone knows that exercising your body makes you stronger and look better. A company called Posit Science Corp. released a program today called InSight that promises to give your brain a workout.

Insight has five different exercises in a game style format that the creators say provides fun play but uses sound science to train your brain. According to the developers improving your visual acuity can help increase your productivity in a normal day.

“Surveys show that keeping your driver's license is a top priority as we age," said Karlene Ball, Ph.D., a psychologist who studies the sensory and cognitive functions that are relevant to older adults maintaining everyday abilities, including driving skills. Dr. Ball directs the University of Alabama at Birmingham Center for Research on Applied Gerontology. "That's because all the things that help us maintain our autonomy and independence are critical to healthy aging. Getting InSight out of the lab and into the hands of consumers will improve quality of life and change how we age."
