* The Brain Fitness Program – This program examines the revolutionary science of neuroplasticity or the brain's ability to change and adapt and even rewire itself. The documentary explores the fundamental processes of the brain as well as the nature of plasticity by exploring personal stories and discussions with the researchers and journalists who covered this amazing scientific breakthrough. This program features interviews with noted neuroscientists Dr. Arthur Toga (University of California - Los Angeles), Dr. Michael Merzenich (University of California - San Francisco), and others.

* Brain Fitness Frontiers – This program shows how ordinary people are using their brain plasticity to create lasting and astonishing changes. Neuroscience research is proving that neuroplasticity holds the key to previously unimaginable and amazing transformations. "Brain Fitness Frontiers" takes viewers into the lives of those who have been assisted and changed through cognitive training.

* Brain Fitness: Peak Performance – Dr. Michael Merzenich demonstrates how experts in various fields improve their neurological abilities through sustained, continuous, intense practice of their respective skill set and how such consequential neurological findings in experts compare to the average individual.
