Computer-Based Training for Mild Alzheimer's Disease
Computer-Based Training for Mild Cognitive Impairment and Mild Alzheimer's Disease
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of computer-based training program ("HiFi-AD") on the memory and cognitive abilities of individuals diagnosed with mild Alzheimer's Disease (AD).
The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which computer-based cognitive remediation improves cognitive functions using standardized neuropsychological assessments relevant to AD; 2) the acceptability and feasibility of using computer-based cognitive remediation in an AD population.
