- Change in ratings on cognitive training survey [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 5 ]This survey aims to assess participant perceptions on cognitive training, and includes a series of related questions, rated on a scale of 1-7.
- Change in neural activity [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 5 ]We will measure resting state as well as task-related EEG responses to determine the effects of cognitive training at the neural level.
- Change in performance on neuropsychological tests [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 5 ]Using a set of standard neuropsychological evaluations, we will measure changes in attention, memory, and executive function following cognitive training.
- Change in ratings of psychological wellbeing [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 5 ]We will use standardized questionnaires to assess quality of life, in order to measure the influence of cognitive training on factors related to wellbeing.
