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.

PACT Study:

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.

ESB Study:

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).
