This study examines the effect of cognitive enhancement programs on age related changes in memory and attention.
We are seeking healthy, right-handed adults between the ages of 65-80. If eligible, you will receive 8 professional cognitive training sessions free of charge. You will also receive take-home exercises to supplement your training classes, and will be asked to complete these exercises daily for the duration of the 8-week program.
You will come in for 5 study visits: before the course, after the course, and at 6, 12, and 24 months after the start of the study. These study visits include surveys, cognitive tests, and a total of 3 fMRI scans. In addition to the cognitive training courses, participants will receive compensation up to $275 for completing all study visits.
