Happy Neuron Launches Online Brain Games.

Offering More Than 25 Online Games, Happy Neuron Provides Significant Variety to Brain Fitness Workouts

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Happy Neuron, a leading provider of scientifically based online cognitive exercises, today announces their online brain games are available at www.happy-neuron.com. The newest trend in brain fitness, Happy Neuron offers more than 25 games to strengthen the five major cognitive brain functions and provides over 1,500 of hours of varied game play - a critical component to making it interesting, challenging and fun. Increasing scientific evidence shows that actively participating in appropriately designed brain fitness workouts helps slow the natural effects of aging and defer the onset of diseases like Alzheimer's.

"Baby boomers are entering a time in their lives where they are looking to stay strong both physically and mentally," said Dr. Michel Noir, CEO of Happy Neuron. "After years of research, we developed our brain fitness programs to help with mental agility and are confident that our games provide the best cognitive exercises available online."

Research indicates that performing simple calculations quickly can help alleviate symptoms of dementia by activating large regions of the brain, and Happy Neuron games were developed to simulate these quick calculations in the form of entertaining, online brain games. Happy Neuron offers more than 25 games that target the five major cognitive brain functions:

* Memory - for working memory (15 seconds), short-term memory (up to 60 seconds) and long-term memory

* Attention - hones the ability to concentrate and focus on critical information

* Language - exercises speed, strength and comprehension of verbal and written expression

* Executive Functions - strengthens the highly complex functions of logic, strategy, planning, problem solving and deductive reasoning

* Visual and Spatial -processing information in a 3-D world and interpreting visual information

Included with a Happy Neuron game subscription is access to a personalized, online virtual "coach" who prepares personal brain workouts based on player usage and player performance. The personal coach gauges mental achievement levels and progression based on other players of the same gender, age and education level. Each player is given insight into areas of cognitive strength and weakness and personal progress is charted for each function.

Happy Neuron games are available now at www.happy-neuron.com for a monthly fee of $9.95 or an annual fee of $99.95, both which gives access to unlimited play on the game collection. All games are available for a seven day free trial.
