Department(s) or Division(s)
Cognitive training improves cognitive functioning in the young-old (YO; 60 to 84), yet has not been examined in the oldest-old (OO: 85 years of age and older).
This study will examine the effects of a computerized cognitive training program, CogniFit Personal Coach™, with a "classic" computerized games program, on cognitive functioning in cognitively healthy OO subjects. Participants will be assessed using a neuropsychological exam which includes tasks of memory and attention at the start of the study. Efficacy of the CogniFit™ and games programs will be assessed immediately following the training and four months after completing the training.
