Long Branch Peak Brain Performance
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Improving your cognition early can help fend off memory loss and eventually Alzheimer’s and dementia. Try to do a few brain training exercises per day for a week, see if you notice a difference in your response and recall time. There are many places on the web to find bran exercises, try to make sure that whatever games you try have certification from a doctor or scientist. If you try this out and do notice a difference, please leave a comment and let us know your experience. Here’s a study we found that backs it up.
Computerized Cognitive Training for Older Persons With Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Pilot Study Using a Randomized Controlled Trial Design at Empowered Learning Transformation Centers.
The results of a pilot randomized controlled trial of computerized cognitive training in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are reported. Participants (N = 25) were randomized into either the treatment or wait list training groups. Sixteen participants completed the 30-session computerized cognitive training program using exercises that target a range of cognitive functions including attention, processing speed, visual memory and executive functions. It was hypothesized that participants would improve with practice on the trained tasks, that the benefits of training would generalize to non-trained neuropsychological measures, and that training would result in improved perceptions of memory and memory functioning when compared with wait list controls. Results indicated that participants were able to improve their performance across a range of tasks with training. There was some evidence of generalization of training to a measure of visual sustained attention. There were no significant effects of training on self-reported everyday memory functioning or mood. The results are discussed along with suggestions for future research.
