Scientific Learning Delays Quarterly Results Release

OAKLAND, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 17, 2005 -- Scientific Learning (NASDAQ: SCIL) today announced that it has rescheduled the release of its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2005.

While preparing the first quarter financial statements, the Company determined that it had classified certain deferred revenue as long-term which should have been classified as current. The Company intends to file an amended annual report on Form 10-K to correct the classification error. The Company's outside auditors have not yet completed their review of the reclassification. The Company filed a Form 8-K yesterday disclosing the classification error.

"We are working diligently with our outside auditors to enable them to complete their review quickly. Our goal is to announce our first quarter results as soon as possible," said Robert C. Bowen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
