The purpose of this study is to determine the neuropsychological and neurophysiological impacts of a computer-based training program designed to improve the cognitive performance of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
Condition or disease
Mild Cognitive Impairment
Procedure: Computer-based training for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
The study is a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of a computerized, cognitive intervention with three main goals: 1) to assess the magnitude of improvements in memory, language function, and cognitive function following computer training, 2) to investigate the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying such neuropsychological improvements, and 3) to demonstrate the feasibility of using this kind of computer-based therapy in older populations.
