HARP Cognitive Training
Healthy Aging Research Program: Computerized Cognitive Training
Based on vision-based speed of processing (VSOP) training, we studied the effects of computerized cognitive training on social well-being in adults aged 60 years or older.
Personalized Engagement Program (PEP)
We used a person-centered intervention to assess whether computer-based cognitive training programs modify attitudes towards technology use, cognitive function, and independence. Participants are older adults aged 60 years or older with mild memory complains who are current residents of local senior living communities.
Computerized Cognitive Training - Expanded
This was a four-year NIH-funded study. We recruited people aged 60 years or older with a clinical condition called "Mild Cognitive Impairment." We provided computerized cognitive training to help slow cognitive and functional decline.
Neural Mechanisms of Central Fatigability
This was a two-year NIH-funded study. We recruited people aged 65 years or older without cognitive impairments and used computerized tasks and fMRI to assess CF.
Stressful Experiences and Alzheimer's Disease
This was a two-year Alzheimer's Association-funded project. We recruited people aged 60 years or older with different cognitive states (cognitively healthy, MCI, and mild Alzheimer's disease). We utilized a cognitive stress task protocol with fMRI, ECG, and stress (cortisol) levels (through saliva samples).
