Cognitive Training Projects

Cognitive training is the delivery of intense but game-like mental exercises that target the development of specific cognitive skills.  Research activities in this area include pre-test/post-test quasi-experimental and experimental designs, prediction studies on archived student data, and pilot testing of new and revised cognitive training procedures delivered one-on-one by cognitive trainers or through interaction with a digital delivery platform.
