|Brief Title ICMJE||Computer-Based Training for Cognitive Enhancement: Audio Training Version .6D4.R|
|Official Title ICMJE||Computer-Based Training for Cognitive Enhancement: Audio Training Version .6D4.R|
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the design and effectiveness of a computer-based training program on the memory and cognitive abilities of mature individuals undergoing healthy aging.
The purpose of this study is to test the new progressions design of a computer-based training program and to demonstrate the effectiveness of this refined cognitive training regimen on participants’ performance on normed neuropsychological measures.
Subjects meeting eligibility criteria and providing written, informed consent will complete 40 one hour sessions of a computer based training program.
